Poetic Pretension - (by tom balistreri)

The inclination to give perception,
of eloquent literary invention,
may cause an author's attention,
to submit to poetic pretension.

The serious poets curse,
may be to write in fanciful verse.
With works that appear,
a mix of King James and Shakespeare.

Though temptation may beguile,
still I resist that style.
Perhaps because my muse,
is closer to Seuss.
