Poetic Woe

October 1, 2010
By Anonymous

Oh, a task has never been so daunting
As to try and mimic another’s style
Told to display our skills with much flaunting
But this emulation may make some rile
Others, however, enjoy this folly
And, if asked again, they may supply,
“Why sure, it left me feeling quite jolly!”
But most may simply refuse to comply
One may be reluctant to finish this task
For they find it as pleasant as jaunting
And, when completed, will want to rest and bask
When others will only expect taunting
For this poet, it may be a long while
Before she likes any of her rhym’d bile.
