Pleading Guilty

I’ve chosen to be
brutally honest
in the digital realm
of mediocrity

I haven’t bitten
my tongue once
I’ve never tasted
my own blood

All the punches
I’ve thrown
were never pulled
always hitting
their mark with
force and precision

A few publications
ending in WordPress
ran by the same
editor who claims
to be prolific
has forbidden me
from submitting
over a petty
little argument
standing my ground
like a statue
I’d be offended
if I admired his


I may not be
the most amiable
writer available
but I’ve never
pretended to be
something I am not
if candor is a crime
I’m pleading guilty
to the charge
