Present-Day Poetry

~
I am so angry
with present-day poetry,
in poetry passing review.
~
When reading the poets
of present-day poetry,
I’m flummoxed, bewildered, bemused.
~
No rhyme, nor meter;
no beating with time.
No accentual syllabic
to be found in the Line.
~
But then that’s the freedom
of Art for Art’s sake
in present-day poetry
for which I berate.
~
Perhaps I’m just angry
that some is so swell
that I can’t comprehend,
nor write it as well.
