The bad poet is back

This poet simply can’t 
Reach people 
He ascends but 
Doesn’t steeple

He thinks of his work as 
An odyssey 
A pearl
Without the modesty

If only he had a 
Coherent theme
A well turned phrase 
Or a poignant scene

But he just doesn’t have 
What he ought’a
And drivels away 
Like water.

Steve, The hook has been set, yet some won't bite, tell us about You, and set the story right. -Richard

You have expressed how we all feel from time to time, some of us much more often than others.

Thank you. This poem was inspired by my own efforts, all too often very bad.
