You want to write a poem?

You want to write a poem?
I'll tell you how it's done
Just throw around some rhyming words
Then add a random pun

You want to write a poem?
You want a lot of views?
Just take a famous subject
Maybe something from the news

You want to write a poem?
It won't even take a while
Just search some famous quotes up
'You'll find that life is worthwhile"
                                                                                                                                                 (Charles Chaplin)
You want to write a poem?
Well, you know what they say,
Just steal somebody else's words,
Change them to fit your way,

You want to write a poem?
Well how hard can it be?
Take your favorite lyrics,
And take them into custody,

You want to write a poem?
Because you think its easy,
Well that, my fellow writer
makes me feel quite queasy

You want to write a poem
My friend, take my advice
You needn't try
If views are all that's in your mind

Oops that one didn't rhyme
Just change that word to rice
It ain't that big a crime

Is it only me who is annoyed by all these poems?
Which are made just for the views
With cringe worthy rhyming
Sarcasm is my friend, lets just leave it at that...actually let's not...
I haven't been on Da for a while...but...aaargh! The pain of reading a poem in which the writer doesn't know what he/ she is writing about!!!

No names being mentioned...
No, I'm not a perfect poet, I have made my poet sins but...never have I written for views, and poem writing isn't easy, you can't schedule yourself to write a poem! You can't say to your watchers:
I will update once a week
Because there will be months you write nothing
And months you are a human poem machine
But GNGNGNngng- that's what I do (along with a hand spasm) when I read a bad poem (sometimes the poem is my old poem but ah well, nobodies perfect, unless you are nobody, then you are perfect, but if you are not nobody, you are not perfect)
Again I ask the world....WHYYYYYYY!

On a lighter note, hope you enjoy, and if you do, fave, and if you agree, comment

I have some strange news, I write poems and stories for views.
To suffer over a choppy prose and not show it, stinks like a rotten rose.

Unlike other hobbies in which you can tell if you are doing well, writing forces us to
show our work to others even if it is good or does smell.

Can you elaborate why writing for views makes you irate?

Hope you view me well for posting this bit of doggerel.

Ah hello! Ans sorry if I took so long in replying.
If writing for views means having no connection whatsoever with the poem and knowing that you are just writings things that people will agree with then that's what really bugs me.

I hope I answered your question and if not just reply saying so! I was waiting for someone to ask that seeing as I wanted to explain. Sometimes the audience has to think in others shoes and see what the poet means!

No problem, you have explained it.

LOL! That is hilarious! Both the poem and what you have said! HAHA! I'm cracking up! I get exactly what you mean! I'm a bit of a poet myself! Though, keep them coming!

Well written =)
Sometimes I don't use rhymes, because the idea may be too difficult to make rhymes from it.
You expect from random poets to put their souls into the poems...

This is an intriguing piece in the question you arrise. Its pretty true, there are those out there who do this. Or on occasion I've found a piece that I thought sounded really deep, but when inquiring to the writer about it, they say they basically just wrote it without any emotional connection to the piece, and at those times I feel almost betrayed by them. Perhaps thats a strong choice of word, but does it make sense?

I don't know why this poem sounds like the song "Do you wanna make a snowman?" from Frozen xD

Sometimes I just feel like writing.

Lol I was actually hoping for a tutorial on how to write a poem because I never managed to create one :P
But it was a good read, and I totally agree with you.

And reading the comments below is fun too.
