The Poet Must Die - New Poetry - by Sze-Leng Tan


The Poet Must Die
by Sze-Leng Tan


For your love is a sin...
Your emotions are naked...

 

Your form will perish; you must wither...
While the echoes of your words

 


................................................Reverberate

 

Lovers say bye
Why don't you?

 

Legends subside
But you and your legacy!

 

Humans do lie
Your bragging on humanity!

 

Senses fade away
Pack up your sensuality!

 

Beaux will leave
Your talks of eternal beauty!

 

Truce transits
So is your romanticised truth!

 

Artists must yield
Why mustn't you?

 

For your love is a sin...
Your emotions are naked...

 

Your form will perish; you must wither...
While the echoes of your words

 


................................................Reverberate

 


You! Poet, must die
Along with your life of hyped-up poesy

 

While the echoes of your words

 


................................................Reverberate

 


.....................................................verberate

 


...........................................................berate

 


.................................................................rate
