What would one person write as their first poem on a website devoted to writing? Oh, and a Title cannot be copyrighted, so the title I chose for this is "My First" but I had to change it, how stupid.

So what to write, the First of many?

To what shall I lend my keys?

The Clickity-Clack of white on black,

Symbols, numbers and A, B, Cs?

With no edits, except for spelling,

each line stays as-is.

Type it over again and again

it begins to lose its fizz :(

So start a line and finish quick

if the next line's in my head,

or finish slow the line I'm on

to make sure where I'm lead.

I ain't no Chaucer or Whitman

no fame I see will come.

But if I find that one who nods

and smiles, my job is done.

Or if one tears at saddened soul

due to the words eyes seen,

the anger, too, is just to woo

to next phrase un-obscene.

So First this is of many? Sure!

Why not, my next will be...

The one about the platypus.

What emotion? You tell me.
