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. May 2019

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.
