Readers Blues

Written by: Jack Ross jr.

I've read it three times and it still makes no sense
What's this all about I'm so frustrated I just want
to throw the bloody thing out. Who is she and 
what is he? All these forms, Haiku, Tanka, Senury 
Who are they? I don't have a clue, sounds
like foreign diplomats that's the rue.

Metaphors that are really hard to figure out,
makes my head hurt that's what I'm
talking about.
Just shoot it to me straight that would sure
be great.
