    It does seem a rather cynical poem for a poet - if that makes sense.

    Maybe it's aimed at 'off the shelf' poets like me :D

    Well, everyone's got to start somewhere, right? ;)

    But your right, he may not be aiming at poetry as a whole (although it rather seems like he is).

    It's actually the opposite Bob: He actually loves poetry. Good poetry. Genuine poetry.
    He appears to be complaining about all the bad, superficial, over-sentimental, lazy
    poetry. He's challenging you to dig a bit deeper into yourself and find your genuine
    material; challenging you to up your game in terms of poetry craft. Well, that's the
    takeaway I get.
