To the Members of the Academy of American Poets

Yes, I've read what you have written.
There's no music in the words.
Thus, it isn't poetry.  There's no
Story line, no logic. just a stack
Of spat-out nonsense, aka
Non sequiturs.  There's pretense
By the bucket-load, and, as required,
Ampersands, but, though you've
Got a teaching job, and won awards,
And published books, I have to tell you
Honestly, your words are so much shit.
