Scream Of An Ugly Butterfly

My spelling is quite atrocious
And my grammar is perplexing
I'm not literately ferocious
Which makes reading me quite vexing

I've not been lauded for my ideas
To which I'm told their all quite trite
And my spark light is just average
For a genius that's not so Bright

My meters rarely rhyme which is a poetic crime
A larceny in artistry to which theirs only spat
And my cadence is a match to the stomach of a fly
But I'll be dammed if I were called another senseless Hack


I'll never be the critic's friend
Or the readers hip top 10
For this is only medicine
To escape my fascist discipline

For I write just too survive
And Scream for the ugly butterflies

PROBABLY damned, not dammed, BUT............you did type: My spelling is quite atrocious! ! Now, at the risk of annoying you: For I write just too survive.........to your stated Topic of anger doesn't 'work for me'. but i have a 'good PH friend', James McLain, formerly Is It Poetry, who always (i think) uses green for a topic, no matter the actual topic, AND he, too, is spelling-disabled at times. ha ha. bri :)
literately is new to me. adverb form of literate. nice. i just read Poet's Notes: i'm glad you didn't explode; i hate messiness! ! ! To which I'm told their all quite trite........i think: they're all and: ..............theirs only spat...........theirs again? and spat, meaning what? (to be continued) ....
