~ POETIC FASHION ~

As a poet I share
Much like the wanton coquette
Seductively attempting
To convey, "Beyond compare"
Avoiding the pedantic
Wrestling with the romantic
While dancing with many writers
A most respectful minuet...

But I daresay I hate
The wistful, wanton, allegory
Seductively strategic
In the guise of Godly poetry
And driving the religious
Down throats as delicious
While never admitting
Poetic design
Is much bigger....

Oh, when will the quill
Let go its feathered design
Seductively inventing
An "Au Courant" form of flying
While pushing the boundaries
Of liberal libraries
And waltzing with writers
Like old fashioned scribes....

As a poet
I take action,
I do so with my sword
My ink
My inquisitive,
Definitive,
Nature,
And I do it
In deadly,
Poetic,
Fashion....

Another blow to a dogmatic society we so crave, but where is your shield dear brother, protection is a must while pushing boundaries, be careful of landslides.

Hi T....I love the imagery that makes me think of a musketeer with his sword raised to duel in honor....as the scribes hold their mighty pens of ink to battle wits and present their best in poetic fashion.  You definitely have that inquisitive definitive nature in your writing....and a very determined nature to present your best...which you do consistently.  You are the perfect example of a modern day profound poet.  Great work!  xo Love n Hugs ;)
