This Poem Will Satirize Poems This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

An Apple (notice the capitalization
It's important
(That line break
was too)
And the reference to Adam and Eve)
Sidles and slouches in a wrinkled cluttered place
(the line is
Cluttered
and there is an alliteration
also I am vague)
Mold creeps,
With personification,
On our old apple
(I'm addressing you)
A worm won't ever choose
To reside within
Such a place.
(Nobody wants the apple
because mankind has ruined
Our knowledge (that's commentary
On society
with a rhyme.)

I don't think poems deserve to be satirized as much as literary criticism. (Unless the poem was written with the intention of being a literary masterpeice, which sounds like the case here and is kind of sad.) I like writing that doesn't take things too seriously- good job.

Sweet story bro! It makes alot of sense! I find it as so interesting as to how vague and confusing it is. But that is the start of a great poem. Read my most recent poem. Its brutal truth.
