Someone felt the need to leave empty criticism on one of my posts. His words: “To be honest, this is bad writing.” And left it at that. I’ve never once professed to be a great writer, but I am of the school of if you have nothing nice to say than say nothing at all. Or at least in this case, tell me why you think it’s bad ?
so this is my creative retort written in a rondeau. Thank You KT Workman for the inspiration.
(Note: A rondeau poem has 15 lines containing 3 stanzas—a quintet, a quatrain, and a sestet. Lines 9 and 15 are short: a refrain consisting of a phrase taken from the 1st line.
Rhyme scheme: a-a-b-b-a, a-a-b-R, a-a-b-b-a-R.)
To be honest with you, your writing sucks !
What makes you think I give two flying fucks !
Well, I’m so sorry, it had to be said.
Can’t you offer better feedback instead ?
You can’t write for shit, what’s there to discuss ?
Did I write too much, what would you deduct ?
ALL OF IT DUDE, IT IS WRITTEN FOR SCHMUCKS!!
Well then please zip it, it’s best left unsaid
TO BE HONEST…
NEVER BE ROLLING IN THE MEGA BUCKS
LAUGH IN YOUR FACE ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU SUCK!
Thanks for the worthless thoughts up in my head said to my face there may have been bloodshed empty critiques, never a place to tread. to be honest…
