Arrogance of a Poet
By: Viraj Bhanshaly
Reading, reading, reading aloud,
Out to an audience or a large crowd,

A lovely poem, simple like this,
Rhyming couplets, O what a bliss,

Next a succulent simile,
Like this, like that or just like me.

Alliteration, simile all in one,
The Sun looked down, thinking well done!

Whoa, personification, the touch of skill
But of course, I can still

Go further and further with these thoughts,
Enjambment used, eat my shorts!

My skill unmatched, the audience applauds,
Score, 10/10, definitely assured.

But still this skill was not enough;
they believed my poem was still a rough

Copy or a draft, not the final one,
a poem to impress, that could have won.

And so I wander back, like a whale
To feed my young poems a treacherous tale,

To which they will, rebel and fight
For why did that poem not set alight

The crowd with all its great talent,
But I will not, never, relent

In making you poems walk into fame,
And there goes my poetic technique again...
