Hip poetry

Haikus can be fun

But they can be boring too

And hipsters are dumb




Siobhan Adcock

Wrote a book combining both

The results are mixed




It is fun to see

The world’s most pretentious folk

Be skewered for it




Especially by

A fellow hipster to boot

They had it coming




Unfortunately

Adcock is often too nice

Makes it feel gutless




Without some sharp teeth

The clever idea wanes

Waste of intellect




Where there could have been

A comment on stupid trends

There is no substance




It’s still well done though

And the poems made me laugh

Good to read with drink




Cool illustrations

And well done presentation

Add to the package




Ultimately, though

The aesthetic can’t save it

Talent still wasted




It’s kind of funny

How much it’s like its subject

Clever but petty
