~The Poet’s Poet~
He is never alone once in the company of the alphabet
Each line of poetry must have its own juice
Not written to be analysed but to be experienced
We all have our own preferences which is the way it should be
For those who find it difficult to sit and read,
Audio is a great addition
Experience for yourself, whether in your car on a train
Or perhaps doing mundane housework
You will be amazed the enjoyment it will bring
Then contemplate the alphabet and write what you’re about.
Take a wander along the sidewalk of life
There appears to be at this given time
Nothing but trouble and strife?
Drug pushers, drug smugglers, drug users,
Child molesters, child abusers
Those looking for handouts, if you refuse them –
Everywhere civil unrest,
Leaders being put to the test
Maiming, disclaiming, earth quakes,
Law enforcers claiming mistakes?
Housing issues, politicians who debate,
Politicians who accuse
Evections, contradictions, Banks who loan,
Bankers who moan
Money lenders, squanderers
Mortgage lenders, Bankrupts,
Billionaires with no cares?
Online this and Online that, Text, Tweet, Facebook,
ANYONE 4 HUMAN CHAT?
Join the digital revolution – IS this really the solution?
Time for some naval gazing instead of star gazing,
Wouldn’t it be just amazing if
THIS was considered to be trailblazing?
Writers who rant, you see poetry can take many forms –
It need not always enchant?
