Poetry is pointless, no one reads Poetry

poems are like assholes…

original photo by Enrico Mantegazza

They say
poetry is pointless

Words just whispered in air
or shouted out in rhythms and

punctuated
pauses

to emphasize with flair!

They say
no one reads poetry

Who has the time to spare?
with so much going on
in the world and at home,
how can one even care?

They say
poems are like assholes

or I mixed that somewhere
I tend not to listen
when the rhymes are not there.
