It was only with the assistance of the oddly silent man, that Charles Snippy was able to walk through the knee deep snow. His muscles were aching and his lips numb. Fatigue and lightheadedness made him want to keel over, but the man was holding him tightly and keeping him upright. Though, oddly, he chose to interlock their arms, as if they were a happy couple taking a lovely stroll through the park. Charles could barely find it in him to keep his eyes open. The original sensation of hope he’d felt when disbelievingly taking the man’s hand and being helped up, had subsided. Right now, he was just tired and in pain. He wished briefly that the man would just let him relax, and take a nice, long, and final nap in the snow. But he couldn’t even bring himself to utter this desire.
After a walk that seemed to have taken forever, they were leaving the dead zone, and walking through the outskirts of the ruined city Eureka. A meaningless realization, since t
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
