Damn Poets

Damn Poets
So smug in Their vision
of what you have missed,
what you can't see with blinded eyes.

Damn Poets
So satisfied in Their expression
of what you did see but cannot say
as they have.

Damn Poets
So confident in Their knowledge
that even as you Damn Them
you secretly wish to join Them.

Aristotle Edgar Allan Poe
Alfred Lord Tennyson Walt Whitman

William's Whimsical Words:
