Sonnets from Suburbia: Nailed it!
Lady Penelope yearns to be praised with millennial compliments although she doesn’t understand them. Our dear Lady P nails it in… “Nailed It!”.
I long to “crush it” as the young folks say;
Or “nail it”, “kill it”, perfection achieve.
Why is the merest effort on display
Declared “so awesome”, I cannot conceive.
If just one thing I did was “off the charts”,
Considered truly brilliant by my peers
With not a single critic throwing darts
‘T would be the highlight of my many years.
Seems showing up will earn a hearty kudo
As if truthful assessments are too rough
None think excessive praise is really pseudo
A pinch of honesty is not enough.
Don’t tell a soul I’ve bucked this trend and mocked it.
I’d sell my soul if someone said, “You rocked it!”
