Are they all over-written
or have I been bitten
by chiggers with burning green eyes?

I'm not a Rhodes scholar
I wear a blue collar
and don't know the wheres from the whys

but a poem should invite you
extremely excite you
with language that flows seamlessly

and not be so clunky
or cleverly funky
that reading requires a degree.

Enough of this whining
the Summer sun's shining
it's time to explore without fear

and fluently fashion
with purposeful passion
new worlds in my own little sphere.
