I am the World's last bona fide poet

I am the World's last bona fide poet
I am proper and serious, original, true:
I can express myself much better than you!
You're all songwriters!
Up-all-nighters!
Idiots with sloppy grins!
Dunces, dullards, harlequins!
Spewing froth from your glossy lips
all lies and tricks
and rutting hips.
You keep interupting me with your jeers
I am trying to have a conversation with myself here!
My withering witticisms are innocents in shitty prisons
my metaphors, pearls in a bleak swinish world.
You mooncalfs could not even comprehend what you are missing
but when I get on the bar to speak to you
nobody listens.
