I like simple poems, ones which can be understood immediately, ones which don’t make the reader bored. But there are very few poets who write those types of poems.
I am utterly useless at interpreting poetry. In addition, I am useless at commenting on poetry. What do I say about a poem I hardly understand, or which I never related to at all, other than ‘beautiful poem’?
Nowadays with the sudden rise in the number of so-called “poets”, there are poems flying around everywhere, be it on Instagram, Facebook or WordPress.
Here’s a poem I’ve written, as a tribute to the lovely people writing meaningless poetry :
The sky is blue,
The WordPress logo too.
People walking on the street,
Dogs eating meat.
An ant crawling on the ground,
A dumbass of a man I have found.
My towel is taking ages to dry,
The depressed folk cry.
Mind in the gutter,
Kitchen filled with clutter.
I see a bus,
All day I cuss.
When will this poem end,
I wonder if I will ever find a friend.
What? You want one more? Oh c’mon, don’t flatter me! *blush*
Okay, okay, one more, just for you :
Brave are those who fight for a cause,
The sea is turbulent,
The wind angry,
I fight, he fights, we fight,
I die, he dies, we die,
Lying beneath the ground,
Flowers bloom upon our graves,
Soon to be eaten by a hungry dog.
I know that there are some people who will find the meaning beneath the above poems too. *face palm* They’re random garbage I just thought of, so don’t bother. Haha.
Let me know if you’ll want more, I never knew I could write so well. *wink*
