Thoughts of a keyboard warrior.
- C. J. Black.
*He strings words together like beads.
Always on the lookout for poetic leads
Happening on a line which then kicks him into gear
He feels compelled to borrow – never to demur.
Always giving credit to the author of the line
Should one always do so, never think should I decline?
Perhaps there are others with a different mind-set
Who continuously plagiarise – feeling no regret.
For all I know people may have borrowed words of mine
(Not ever suggesting I own words of course)
Here I openly forgive them – you see I have a spine?
Then in saying that – I could well be accusing someone in the wrong?
Plagiarism is rampant – especially in song?
If I had the time or the inclination to Google a line which I have written
Is there dare I ask, a slim chance I could be sorely bitten?
Perhaps such an action would cause my PC to overload?
Have you ever considered travelling down this road?
