A pointless literary exercise

All that I have now is ten syllables
A pointless literary exercise
I have to reword all of my meanings
So they fit in this calculated scheme

Shakespeare did some great work with this method
I'm afraid that it really does not suit
Someone on the side said my technique failed
Why should I try this? I want to be liked.

But enough of these four line boxes now
I would rather have the meaning be clear
Than bury it all in a maze of words
Where I the Minotaur wait here for prey

This has all become very depressing
I think I will shoot myself in the head
(Metaphorically speaking of course)
Then again, I think that it is too late.

(I can't imagine getting this to rhyme)
