MUSE THE OBSCURE

Style and substance,
Don’t you know,
Come to reaping
What you sow.

When your style is
Sow abstruse,
Then your substance
Reaps abuse.

So, see hear, say
What you mean —
Say it sew it’s
What it seam.

    Also mighty strange – the title, that is….or rather, strange that the title came to me today. I wrote this poem some time ago, but didn’t like the title I’d chosen. Thinking about a new title, I recalled a novel by Thomas Hardy called JUDE THE OBSCURE, which seemed to fit here when wordplayed into MUSE THE OBSCURE. The strange part is that after posting the poem, I found that Thomas Hardy died on this day, Jan. 11 (in 1928).

    Sew it isn’t sew Muse. Sew it isn’t sew.

    Which reminds me why the dutiful nun became a seamstress: God told her sew.
