Poetic spell

Yes, this is a poem,

surprise, surprise!

Supposed to be profound,

and draw you into 

its poetic spell.


It’s bullshit, of course—

the worst type of bullshit—

because it claims to be

just so insightful, profound,

about the deepest oceans of soul.


But this fucking poem

is nothing but a lie,

one that I will rhyme 

so beautifully until

the day I die.
