Good Poetry Is Hard To Write

Well, all, I'm sorry for the longer-than-usual space between posts. I can tell from the absence of any kind of comments that you missed it terribly. Anyway. I wrote a poem. And it's brilliant. Hehe. Just try and tear it apart, and you'll realize the brilliancy of it. Because if it's a good poem, then good. And if it's a bad poem, then it makes its point. So, without further ado, here it is:

Good poetry is hard to write;
It’s hard to make it bite.
Good poetry is always right,
It never sounds too trite.
Good poetry is always real;
Whether it’s hard as steel
Or smooth as satin,
If it’s right, the reader wins,
And the poem sings.
