So tired of attempting to conform to what is the literary definition of "politically correct"!
Gone on vacation the rythm,
to the wind flies the rhyme
A poet teetering on the edge,
blast tradition and conformity...
Weary becomes the traveller,
he who tries to remain correct
Politics in every blasted thing,
time to burn the pivotal shack
Try as one might fame is distant,
"old glory" has become just that
Fortune a dream, no a nightmare
poverty reality literally to the literary
To live and do with utter passion,
caring not the critic's passing gas
Writing and expressing irregardless,
definitely not for the feign of heart
I have crossed that threshold,
my nightmare changling dream
Behold these words I have writ,
to hades I say with literary politics

|Outstanding remarks on the rules of the ruling intelligentsia; words pinponging in "Tradition, Conformity...Back You Demons".
Enjoyed this creation of Your Most Sublime Grace.
