Poetic Ingenuity

The best poems are those,
Which are not understood,
By normal human beings
Readers take a life time,
Trying to solve the puzzle,
What did the poet really mean?

A sudden spurt of ideas ensues
Critiques earn their dues,
Trying to resolve
Take credit,
For what little they themselves know

Thank God in their time,
There was no computer nor telephone,
An instant cell, to question…
So they were saved all the embarrassment,
Which is our lot today,
As we have to explain,
The abstractness,
We so ingeniously display.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


now ....this site has more poets than readers

If one views the undiscovered poems page
you will know what I mean...

The admin must reintroduce
so many xxxx xxxx readers in numbers
have read
, in order to sustain poetry on this site.
