You’re here,
but you don’t want me.
You write long-winded words
and pretentious sentences,
for someone to take your bait
and pay you back
in three wishes
of African gold,
but let me tell you,
my dear,
bait is bitter and gold is cheap,
compared with a fact,
my biggest inspiration is anger
and you inspire me
a lot

  1. Thanks, what a brilliant little poem!
    Although perhaps it should have been “Short and (Bitter)Sweet”?
    Either way I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when I read the end πŸ˜‰

    Great stuff!

  2. It’s not easy to write clean, evocative poems that deal in abstract concepts. You do that well here. Thanks for a poem worth reading.
