Poets - Morbid And Morose

With pen in hand
They take to paper
Expressing feelings to fellow man
That at first seem most proper.

But as is quickly seen
They have an insight
That is downright mean
For they believe they have been given a slight.

So they spill out their guts
In a cascade of words
That expresses their innermost regrets
And poison outflow fills their voids.

Morbid and Morose
Is their message
As are those
That dwell on life's carnage.

(After reading 'New and Selected Poems' by Philip Appleman)
