Them Offend

I'm always a little surprised, wait, no that's not the best word, no, let's go with perplexed. Yes, I'm often perplexed at who feels implicated over what -- and who is determined to defend and protect a clearly broken part of a system. Especially when these happen to be the same folks who go after another broken part of the same system. You know, the particular broken part that doesn't work for them. That part is despicable and deserving a smiting -- in the name of poetry. Their rallying is for the good of poetry and if you can't see that, well, you know who you're a tool for. But when other people go after another busted part of the system, you know, the part that isn't working/helping them. Somehow it's all quite different, has nothing to do with poetry, it's all about them, selfish, whiny them -- the them that doesn't care about the poetry cause paying attention to their poems will just mean less poetry. This is the them that reminds them they're no more outside the dastardly system than anyone else -- those who spear the kneecap, but shield the belly.

Thank you for reading my essay.
