I Wanna Be Top Writer

I Wanna Be Top Writer

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

Inspired by the Writers cafe's secret society s**t storm. A not to bad of an idea that quickly went awry

"


Straight to the top of the poetry chart
That's a fair deal to me
I don't want to work or do anything
Just hand it all to me

I can't be bothered to send RR's
I'm too cool to review
I'm too brilliant to learn to write
Cause I'm better than you

I write free verse with my eyes closed
hammered on whiskey sours
Hemingway was drunk off his a*s
That's how I spend my hours

So when I wrote my masterpiece
It didn't make the top
It's all that other writer's fault
The one who has me blocked

When all I said was he sucked a*s
and couldn't write a list
Some constructive criticism
So now the a*****e's pissed

Can't you see my brilliant genius
I shouldn't have to work
I don't want to write my way up
Cause I'm a lazy jerk

I don't wanna play the WC game
The social network shtick
I don't want to write reviews for
A bunch of rubes and hicks

So gimmi gimmi gimmi that top spot
I want it right away
Screw you chumps who worked for it
Who cares about fair play

Ah-h-h-h, my dear BR. Who has decided to piss in your Rice Crispies, my friend? Whoever it was, you ought to bow, then extend a warm and hearty—"Hey, thank you!"—'cause this poem here, it's a keeper! They have certainly inspired you to write a scathing, wicked satirical poem, which makes many valid points, I might add. I will say one rather derogatory thing about WC...It certainly ain't the place for writers of stories to go, that's fer damn sure! Just look at the live feed, for example. Poem, poem, poem, poem, poem comment on poem, poem...ad infinitum. I prefer to write stories. That's why I'm rarely ever here anymore. No one wants to take the time, it seems, to read a story. I'm no poet, that's a given. But, I do know what I like, and this little gem is going in my personal library.

As I said earlier, it's a keeper!

Tate shared the link to this poem ..very funny and quite biting .. Tate had shared the story behind this and it is just too sad ..it reminds me of the Mozart movie "Amadeus" and the very jealous counterpart Antonio Salieri ..nice rhyme and rhythm and happy to take with the well seasoned humor .. unfortunate state for all :(

Best sarcasm EVER!!!!! I love this. Who can't relate, especially those of us who do the work? Normally, I don't like to waste my time addressing those with attitudes. I'd rather focus on the gems & try to be the change I want to see. But every once in awhile, we need the release of frustration that a well-penned diatribe like this can bring. Feels as good as taking a monumental morning dump! Thanks for taking the heat so we don't have to be the s****y ones (((HUGS)))

LOL. Thanks Mr G
Thanks for the laugh - this was a great eye opener for someone who became a pensioner 24 years ago and still trying to prove I'm top dog. Failure is now my only option - I can see that now, and I shall follow your advice.
Poetic justice and great stuff!!!

Very funny and I like satire! You use it well here and garnered a few chuckles out of me.

Lol YES!! Thank you writing this.. I had no idea of this game until recently. I genuinely thought this place was for sharing and critique. I always work on my own stuff and review my closer friends.. I had no idea there was an underside to it all... I mean what is there to gain from being the top writer? Is there a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow? lol

Hahahaha, your works sucks a*s, because...it sucks a*s! Derpa Derrrr. (sounds like my parents as a kid, when I asked why I couldn't do something; although I still maintain that they were the immature ones there) Seriously a great poem here! I love satire, and while this may not be Jonathan Swift, this has all the scathing scorn that I love and look for. Most people just want people to look over their own work, and they get so caught up in personal verification, that they forget that this is exactly what most writers want. You want someone to look at your work? Even published works are often skipped over, so roughly written stories on a small community are likely to slip through the cracks. But this site offers one opportunity which is not so readily available in the real world, the ability to earn criticism and critique. Writing even a simple review for an a writer, no matter how amateur, who is struggling can really make their day. People forget all too easily that it is not all about them. Thanks for posting such a nice piece (or perhaps it isn't so nice?) My only issue with this site so far, is how unbalanced the quantity of poems are to stories. I am a story writer, no so much about poetry. Few people want to take the time to either write or read stories, so getting feedback is difficult. Not to mention, I have an easier time reviewing stories, since I understand them better. But I guess this is just another challenge; time to get down and dirty with the poetry, and maybe I will better understand it in time?
