on failing to write a poem

you are a poorly written piece
excellence is rare but i demand it
and since you have failed to reach my standard
i consign you to the waste paper basket

wait cried these words
not so fast
lest you act in haste
and are left aghast

it is true we are a poorly written piece
in your bland assessment you are quite right
but we are the only poorly written piece
which you have written tonight

and since twas true
as sins forgive
i retrieved the paper
and let him live
