Discovery Beyond Recovery

The poem poured out,

On to tired looking paper,

Where bored ‘individuals’,

Took turns to rape her,

Dissecting, infecting,

Disgusting theory,

Whilst words withered, wondering,

Why do they fear me?

Imaginations, stifled,

They rifled through text books,

Terrible teaching,

Received only vexed looks,

Schooled in deciphering,

Kept under heel,

The poem wept,

For they did not feel.

    • thank you, Paul! I was remembering school (from many, many, many moons ago!) for some reason and went off on a voyage of discovery. My bitterness towards the ‘educated’ who misrepresent poets just flooded…oops! I hope this finds you well, sir. best wishes from baldy

    Very powerful and touching, I wish it would make some people think and rethink.

    • Thank you, my friend. You do write pieces that make others think, don’t be hard on yourself. I appreciate the encouragement, purely because you are such a talented writer yourself. Keep smiling and keep writing, best wishes from baldy 🙂
