Infamous Laydeez: That Dickinson Girl

Inhabiting a world of men
In an age Victorian
Once each now and then again
Some young upstart woman would
Conduct her other than she should
According to authorities
Everybody looked to please

Such a one was Emily
Presented with, complacently,
Demand her public faith renew
In the annual review
All the students put on view

Ms. Dickinson kept herself out
Of the universal route
She said then, "I prefer, you see,
The privilege of doubt."

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
