Poetry: Phonetic Lee

Poetry: Phonetic Lee
May 25, 2016 No Comments » Writing Advice Eric Keizer

Today’s post is a dig at a friend of mine. Enjoy the pun in my phonetic fun.

Phonetic Lee

My PED-a-gogies oft cross lines

Between PEE-dan-tic

& ragged,

A mere word slave

Upon a lathe

Which chips away my


Semantics often rules my mind,

When po-LIT-icos talk


I get hung up

& fall apart

In heated

Nu-CLEE-ar fission.

I bend plowshares back into


To fight my word filled dread.

Slowly I’ve come to REE-al-ize

It’s all been in my head.
