A reformed poet

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have decided to make my poems more poetic,
And hence you will now find them less didactic.
 
I shall not care for the harsh word of the critic,
Or the sly grin, the underhand compliment of the cynic.
 
Thus, for example, when I see a madman I will call him a mystic
And ask him about the mysteries of the life, both worldly and cosmic;
 
And I shall report back all his abuses, and other words cryptic
And shall convince you to follow him, with the faith of a fanatic.
 
I shall not draw your attention to all that is rotten and sick
But will move with the powerful, and call their fortune karmic.
 
I shall sing of their greatness, and will get a mighty kick
When awards start raining on me, fast and thick.
