A simple poet…

By: Joe Attanasio

 

 

 

My poetry lacks the flowery feel

That many poets use for appeal

Complex analogies I have to forgo

Actually, how they re made, I don’t know

 

Some poet’s true message they hide

They give barely a hint as a guide

Using words I have to look up to see…

Since I don’t have a Masters Degree

 

Their description of a gain of sand

Twelve lines long and oh so grand

To try and compete with that

I would always fall flat

 

In some poems, I don’t know the cast

The poets knowledge is very vast

Sometimes I don’t know if their pain is real

Or my sadness they just want me to feel

 

I write about simple things we all know

I have thoughts I just want to show

I use words all can understand

No fancy word ‘slight of hand’

 

I try not to make them too long

I don’t want to string readers along

I am but a simple poet

And my poems really show it!
