Write a poem about: Poetry

Pretentious prose

takes the form of a poem.

It thinks itself grand.

Look at my vocabulary!

My sentence structure,

are you compelled

by it?

Lofty heights it reaches for

yet most is substandard,

inadequate to be comtemplated.

Or is it that you

don’t get it?

That must be it

for there never was a poem

which did not compel,

did not find contemplation.

Even if it as just for

those few seconds

it took you to read

the disjointed lines

and words.
