A Spider's Web

Poem By Jonathan Platt

Quantity versus quality is easily achieved,
For those seeking to rush a production of insignificance.
To make claims of something gained.
But clearly a waste of initiative...
Leeched to seek attention sought.
At the expense of another's originality.
But then...
Maggots wouldn't exist,
If they were not fed a reason.
And I am told the best 'maggots' are kept,
Sweat shopped.
Where expressions of flattery and duplicity,
Of ideals to lift and label quickly as one's own...
Are better appreciated in that kind of climate.
