If one buys the notion that poetic justice does indeed exist, it stands to reason that a sort of poetic injustice might also, irrevocably, exist. Considering the state in which poetry exists in the modern world - that is to say, to be a poet is to be someone without an income - it could perhaps be snidely remarked that poetry is suffering from a, suffice to say, poetic injustice itself. Of course, one could also refuse to make such trifling attempts at humour. The author has refrained from showing such restraint.
