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!
