My Response to "Poem Tied to a Chair"

So I wrote a poem a few days ago. It was inspired by that horrible teacher who teaches poems by beating them and tying them to chairs.

POEM TIED TO A CHAIR

dear poem tied to a chair
why are you a poem
you are brittle bones and hair
masquerading as a poem
the chair squirms beneath you
the rope strangling
the poem you once were

dear poem tied to a chair
why are you a poem
tied to a chair

sad and lonely
you want to tether other poems
down

suffocate and kill them
just like you

dear poem tied to a chair
why are you a poem

you should be a verb
you should be preposition
you should be a noun
but not a poem

other words around you
commit suicide
because they do not want
to be like you

a poem tied to a chair
