Ode to a Mawkish Teenage Love Story

Your dystopian premise is more than stupid

Internal logic is poorly executed

Your use of first-person-present-tense

Ought to be a capital offense

 

You’ve forever ruined YA

With chapters of dreadful cliché

Your plot’s full of holes like a sieve

Both heroes TSTL

 

But when the final romantic bliss

They sealed with a vomity kiss

Alas, it made my own bile resurgent

Misery, thy name is Divergent

 

I wrote this for The 16 Tasks of the Festive SeasonSquare 1 - for Día de los Muertos and All Saint’s Daycreate a short poem, or an epitaph for your most hated book ever.
