Poetic Farce

How poetic, they say
Something about gaping flesh
And an analogy
of some sort or another
Shed a tear or two for
the artist who has caught a snapshot
of the human condition in its misery
Meanwhile we will praise ourselves
for having the ability to understand
something as simple as a poem
Supposing it is easier
to understand a poem than to
understand the human condition
Yes, how poetic
