The Beta Sucks
by cricketjeff on June 18. © Jeff Green, All rights reserved
Hard luck if you like anything “too new”.
Enlist at once if you’re for going native
But otherwise prepare to bid adieu.
Enhancing pages with a dash of colour,
The way that Shakespeare’s poetry appeared;
Anathema! Make everything much duller,
Stay safe with brown on backgrounds newly smeared.
Upsetting Kevin with a page that suits you
Cannot be good, you must think as you’re told.
Keep quiet until conformity pollutes you
Spellbound by ads, it’s not worth buying gold!
Why would I pay for rubbish I dislike?
The Beta Sucks so I’ll be on my bike!
I almost never write Acrostics but as I shan’t be able to colour my text on the Beta I thought it would suit this contest well.
If you are using the “beta” (now the main site) you will not see the highlighting for the acrostic I suggest looking at the old form (place a. before allpoetry.com in the address bar) and see which you prefer.
