Not So Bright Says He

NOT so bright
says he
As the Cosmo
Reader scrambles
To Google a
word  from
The works
I have written
On this site

SHIT
what is
a metaphor
What is
Imagery
I prefer
Verse
That begins
With
"Green Eggs and Ham" 

The movie 
starts in
An
Hour
Super heroes
Takes precedence 
Over literary
Classics 

Video games
Captures
my imagery
Something
JD Salinger 
Could
Never
Do
hold on a second
Who is JD Salinger?
Bet he never saw 
Games Of Thrones
A Historical
True story
However I think
They took
Liberties
With
The end

Dora the Explorer
Is
A
Read
I hope
Is on
My child's
Reading list
This
Year
There is
Talk
‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčThey are
Replacing
An ancient
Story
Called
HUCKLEBERRY FINN 
with
It
Hope so
Her reading
Scores
Were low
Last year

Ha....very scathing and sceptical lol. I think there will be no artists, poets, writers or even scientists in future generations Gregg as kids never spend a minute with themselves, don't play games of imagination anymore...always filled up from the outside in!! Nice work ūüĆĻūüĆĻ

Hi Greg....I am always shocked at what little my kids are learning in school of the classic stories and poetry and history....It is all skewed, and they would rather "Google" something they want to know than get a real background and feel for what makes something good.  I think I learned a lot by watching "Game of Thrones" though...or maybe I just convinced myself I did....lol  I enjoyed. xo ;)
