The Poet is DEAD — Long Live The POEM

The Poet is DEAD — Long Live The POEM

Author, Writer, Poet
Artifact of tomorrow's society
While alive may portray impropriety
Whereas profundity may only be gleaned by posterity

Bards embody ideals floating within realms unreal
But few people at present can clutch our New Deal
Through semantic space some grope and cop a feel
Thus between these lines one's Animus should show it

Yet whoso could discern such a message if inchoate?
Years often pass in decades before meaning is procured
Poetic offspring must proclaim immortal words are inured
Public illiteracy endured until readers' minds mayhap mature

Carom headlong past post-modern doldrums; beyond right or wrong
Carefree aplomb inhabits this song, which chorus hums alto strong
Vanity a ticking time bomb soon succumbs to the throng
Vanishing rhyme reappears via disappearing Poet

Don't be shy, REPLY!
