2 : Antistrophe
With our harsh metallic language
written with our ones and zeros
we must admit to no more heroes
the florid phrase beyond our kenning
and arcane words outwith our remit.
The written world grows ever smaller
a broken line from muse to scribbler
Do you think that what you’re writing
with action verbs and deeds exciting
will bring you fame, deservéd fortune?
Will you beg for transfixed readers?
There’s nothing in your introspection,
your work is flaccid, void of meaning
your talent fails the least inspection.
