The Problem with Poetry

The problem with poetry that it’s not
just anyone who can afford the time
to flit about in fancy and bumptious rhyme.
Not with all the pending projects and reports and contracts meetings and deals networking research with subsequent analyses marketing mergers layoffs (downsizings) powerpoint presentations objectives functions audits projections (not to mention daytime fantasies involving manager janet of the beautiful calves) brainstorming sessions spreadsheets miscellaneous operations and of course The Product (whether sold or bought).
And so it comes to pass that certain souls will forever remain poetically unthought.
