About a poem that sucks

byRandi Grail©

left it spoiled rotten
written on a roll of click clack receipt paper
a poem        -        sort of
ungraceful bic stain blue scribble
not quite worth the oxygen and carbs
spoiled in burning fuel to tension
and making that writing motion
immediately      -      a sour taste
stuck to my fingertips
so impossible to resist
the impulse nagged
and I raised them to my tongue
to taste the dissonance of words
gone embarrassingly wrong
telling all        -      showing nothing
brown nosing every dead end rhyme
caressing every passe cliché
spilling out a mockery of soul
not me    -    not you    -    not real
still I couldn't help but feel
that yes I did I wrote I tried
it's not my fault
not entirely my blame
and since I gave it a shot
no real shame
that the poem died
hello      sucky      poem,
thanks for letting me write
read and be repulsed
impeccability is for the immortal
and so bloody boring
anyway
