Poetry 101

Quickly dashed off poem about daily mundane inanities
Too obvious references to people who are caricatures
Desperate attempts at wit
All is smugness
Descriptions of weather with the word redolent
Or slate gray sky
Cute lines about kisses or pets or children
Sentimental hogwash about lovers in parks
Detailed descriptions of kitchens
Flights of fancy about dreams or angels
Forced rhymes
Political simplicities masked as righteousness
Philosophical musings befitting a middle schooler
Rants raves and critiques about the long forgotten
Similes and metaphors and half parables
Geez I wish I could write all that stuff
