The Eunuch in the Harem

The Eunuch in the Harem

 

By Elton Camp

 

As for all those who dare post poetry online

Severe criticism is a thing they can’t mind

We must always expect some expert to tell

“Nice try, but your poem didn’t flow so well.”

 

Or, “Your writing was really a disgusting sight.

Because the rhymes you selected are just so trite.”

Then along will come some silly, carping slob

“Keep writing, but don’t give up your day job.”

 

Usually, if the critic’s own posting you check

You will find he also didn’t do worth a heck

Like a eunuch in a harem or a musician deaf,

He knows what’s to do, but can’t do it himself
