Idiosyncratic, Or Just Plain Inept? #1 1998

 

      Idiosyncratic, Or Just Plain Inept? #1

 

It’s either idio-

syncratic

Or just plain inept,

And verse

That’s pers-

onal

May make it worse.

Though terse,

It may be odd

And bad,

Or message may

Be tedious:

A sausage stuffed with corn and grease –

A piece

Of well-intentioned pap:

Crap.

Who can know?

Not I,

Nor you –

Oh, pooh!

Cry

Or die;

Dream,

Scream

Or squirm to touch

The skies –

There is no choice.

The idiosyncratic voice

That can’t keep still

Has no free will

And no one can say otherwise.
