Struggle Propaganda for Gaggles


How messy, taking courage as mantra that talk

May lean on a magic way to exist;

Stories feed the soul with struggle myths and don’t balk,

For the vulnerable on which to subsist.

Honk, honk, honk!

    The words I read but not comprehend
    the author’s meaning or intent.
    That is why poems I view
    as things to eschew
    for while the meaning of each word is clear
    I the totality does not cohere
    and it seems to me up in the ionosphere.

    . . . eh, not good at writing poems either
    and not just reading has me in a dither.

      If you substitute: ‘Just what the author might intend’ then you have a winner. Had you been subjected to constant blather about ‘the struggle’ from people who had sat in safe places and taken no actual part, it would make more sense to you.
