I Don't Care What You Think
Gosh! What is up with these people
who tell me my writing is horrible
and insist I should look in the mirror
before I continue my reign of terror?
"Your rhymes are forced," they say,
"and your poems are way, way nay."
But I know these people are wrong;
I have style and talent all along.
My poems are unique and very deep.
Of course; I write them as I'm falling asleep.
When I'm stuck, I visit this very site
whose members inspire me with what they write.
One piece is about love, another fires hate.
Cutting, suicide, loneliness—they all sound great!
In any case, I find angst at every turn,
so I imitate this and that; it's how I learn.
What if my lines sometimes read awkward?
Ah well, they rhyme; let's move on forward.
Doesn't matter if I'm not making sense;
people are free to guess; it adds the suspense.
And rhyming is a popular device indeed;
you'll need to use it if you want to succeed.
And remember as you're writing your poem:
don't ever swallow a Styrofoam.
