The Better Man

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

The Better Man
by Michael R. Burch
 
Dear Ed: I don’t understand why
you will publish this other guy
when I’m brilliant, devoted,
one hell of a poet!
Yet you publish Anonymous. Fie!
 

Fie! A pox on your head if you favor
this poet who’s dubious, unsavor
y, inconsistent in texts,
no address (I checked!):
since he’s plagiarized Unknown, I’ll wager!

The Beat Goes On (and On and On and On ...)
by Michael R. Burch


Bored stiff by his board-stiff attempts
at “meter,” I crossly concluded
I’d use each iamb
in lieu of a lamb,
bedtimes when I’m under-quaaluded.
