Gripe at Tripe

Deemed to be a great writer
Great? No debate, he was rotten
More a hack than creator
Now dead and soon forgotten

Had the world in his pocket
Regrettable but the truth
Now he’s kicked the bucket
For the sins of his youth

He sold out to succeed
Churned out romantic trash
It tells well of his greed
His output was flickers and flash

His life a slip of the tongue
His mind one over the eight
Low down on the literate rung
Should be piked at Traitor’s Gate
