Nowadays, we ignore good poetry

and bad poetry is all we read.

 

Which is great news!

Because based on the time and energy

we Facebook friends have devoted

to pummeling this wretched rhyming piece,

insipid drivel must be the last

evil thing to walk the world.

 

Congratulations to us!

We have saved humanity

(as I knew we would)

with our sarcasm and snide tweets.

 

Such a preening and sanctimonious fixation

on bursting this quivering bubble of buffoonery tells me

snowcaps have reappeared on mountaintops

and polar bears sit on new icebergs merrily munching seals,

liars have recanted and corrected the record,

dictators have restored freedoms and retired,

torturers have questioned career choices and quit,

pedophile priests have been put in prison

and the Vatican has sold its gold for Bitcoin

to compensate the unfortunate children

it allowed to be raped.

 

So having saved the world

from every evil but one,

we can now dedicate

our capricious communal scorn

to crushing this thin, gasping thing.
