Doing What You Are Told

Comical comics ignore
The philosophers of yore
And philosophers of old
Didn’t do what they were told
By the warning on the door

Old men that were once young
Tell the youth bite thine tongue
And some youth will even heed
‘Til it begins to bleed
Onto the chord that was strung

the point of this poem is that one should not do what the old guard says to do without questioning its validity.

Anon, I liked the way you approached the poem.

I find what makes for a good writer is his/her ability to give over their intended message, and not neccesarily just writing a piece that can be loosely interpreted. As a writer you always have to be prepared for misinterpretation. When the intention and interpretation meet, in the right place, thats what makes for a great writer.(I think)

Anonymous is right. Please don't ever stop writing!
