Complete Inanity

It is depressingly simple –
a better declaration on
PH* poetic quality than
zero, zip or zilch
is calling it inanity.

A few synonyms include:
idiocy, silliness, stupidity,
ridiculousness, pettiness,
senselessness, absurdity,
illogicality, irrationality.

Add: farce, folly, futility,
vainness, childishness,
ludicrousness; yes, keep
adding ‘...ys & ‘esses to
inevitably culminate in
insanity & uselessness!

What do I mean? Seen
the poet status – by IP
hits? Go rattle your wits.
Don’t worry, you’re not
about to be enlightened!

To understand these
rules of engagement
and remain poetically
un-estranged would be
complete inanity!
