Only the good get flagged

Only the Good one's get Flagged…

You know, at first I was offended
My world was upended
I felt like I was rear ended
with no kiss, drink or smile

but now I understand the plight
of how jealous creatures in the night
would choose to flag poems
not because the poem is offensive, oh no…
it is because they are envious of the write

only the good get flagged
only the good get flagged

Poets who could not write
Their way out of a paper bag
Use their little knobs
To click abuse
And work the button to ill use

A poem about Anorexia gets flagged
It is jealousy, it is spite
It is now a badge of honor
So I know as I type

Only the good poets get flagged…

Hey you! Don't like this? Flag You!

With love, Guilty…
