poetry critical

online poetry workshop


poetry should not be
pedantic or moralistic
it should exist simply
because it is created
beaches, streams and valleys
hold no moral code
and a poem should be
no different
who would carve a moral
into the walls of the Taj Mahal
to do the same with a poem
would make it ridiculously vulgar
even without moral
a poem has value
and without poetry
i would be lost

this is actually pedantic and moralistic. happily, it's just costipated doggeral and not poetry. you're not tagging the taj, true, but you are word shitting in a poetry workshop.
