Good Review

If you liked my meatloaf
how about a good review –
Third rate work will always thrive
there is so much of it around –
Genius has it harder
being rare
and not to everyone’s taste
neither of which
by the way
my meatloaf is. It is not
and unpopular
I mean. Go on, take another helping.
Everyone does.
And think about what I said.


One thought on “Good Review

  1. That is an interesting observation, the safety that comes from producing the everyday, the humdrum, the way in which taking no risks may lead to mediocrity but also avoids the scrutiny and critiques that comes with producing something of note. Or maybe that interpretation just makes me feel better. Ha ha!
