Idiosyncratic, Or Just Plain Inept? #2 1998


      Idiosyncratic, Or Just Plain Inept?#2


It’s either idiosyncratic

Or just plain inept,

And verse

That’s personal

May make it worse.


Though terse,

It may be odd and bad.

The message may

Be tedious:

A sausage

Stuffed with corn and grease –

A piece

Of well-intentioned pap:



Who can know?

Not I,

Nor you –

Oh, pooh!

Cry, lie 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.
