I have a certain way with words
or so some people say
‘but poetry is for the birds’
the thought they don’t relay

but I must keep on penning it
for it’s a damned disease
that won’t allow the ill to quit
until their last dry wheeze.

Well, I just hope for our sake you don't find the cure!

Carrie Van Horn said...

You have such a beautiful affliction...like Shirley said we don't want you to find the cure.
Always enjoy your poetry. :-)

A sickness that there are no meds to cure. For once pills cant solve this and thats ok!! Great poem thank you for sharing.

Hello Bob,

I love this disease :)
Nice lines...
"but I must keep on penning it

Hi Jingle, thanks a lot but I barely have time to do what I do now, but I'm sure we'll interact through Poet's United.

I think every "true" poet feels this way.
