“Popularity Contest”

The problem
with taste
all goes back
to publishers
guilty of never
using mouthwash

The problem
with wit
all goes back
to quasi-poets
who have no
concept of
how to ingeniously
complete a poem

Instead they excel
at the art
of kissing ass
I’ll like yours
if you like mine
Pandering to please
the alleged fan base

Publisher’s are
going broke
The used bookstore
is up for sale
I’m a half-ass poet
happily wasting
my time
but my breath
is fresh

I feel no need
to partake
in the kissing
of digital asshole
under the guise
of popularity
