Being A Nonpartisan Author

One path of literary renown striving
to craft belles lettres
versus another aim
ming to inject castigation,

fulmination, and intimidation
(unlike tours truly) into
hers/his epistemological dogmatic claim,
would exemplify the twofold tactic,

I matter of factly exclaim
as an aspiring August author
(foremost poet emeritus - ha),
downplaying fortune and fame

aye attempt to tread within
figurative noncontroversial guidelines,
yet nonetheless game
increased readership remaining

safely shy of steering
clear away NOT deliberately inflame
ming the moral majority, and/or
being soak halled politically incorrect,

yet absolutely aware trite neutral,
tis well nigh impossible
towing thru tranquil waters
subsequently inadvertently pitching

smoldering embers sparking acquiring
(even accidentally)
fiery Machiavellian jobname
though methinks expressing

notions, opinions, perspectives,
would contradict advocating viewpoints
incumbent within
creative arts whereat lame

duck role would essentially be
antithetical to general rubric maim
ming necessity to stoke thought
provoking oeuvre of work name
lee poetry and/or prose sans,

this scrivener to (dirt) poor
to afford a penname
aspiring all the same
to experience even pocket change
keeping my liberal
minded material tame.
