Remembering the Emperor's New Clothes

 

Remember the Emperor’s New Clothes?

 

By Elton Camp

 

Recall the story from childhood?

If not, it’s high time that we should

 

The king, a new outfit commanded

And lavish praise for it demanded

 

His tailors agreed to a sneaky trick

A false story to which they’d stick

 

“The unworthy the clothes can’t see”

That they were fine, all then did agree

 

The emperor went on a procession as well

That he was actually nude, none would tell

 

Instead, lavish praise they heaped on him

“Your clothes are great with such fine trim”

 

When a small child the facts brought to light

Others then ridiculed and laughed with delight

 

On writing sites, we’re seeing a similar thing

From some, worthless writes do now spring

 

Not a lick of sense do some of them make

Others, an odious, obscene bent do take

 

Yet, some give reviews with lavish praise

Not a word of truth or protest do they raise

 

Of the little kid, I will now play the part

“Your writing is drivel, not poetry or art”
