whenever i complete a poem

i'm always filled with bliss
i've used some words like boards and nails
to build an edifice
.
but as you stroll my neighborhood
and my shack is espied
you're only seeing the facade
and not the junk inside
.
for there were boards i ripped away
and nails that wound up bent
i've often thrown whole windows out
in wild experiment
.
i've also heard it mentioned
in a different sort of trade
that you would not eat sausage
if you saw how it was made
.
be grateful i can type this
for you can't decode my print
might be chinese you'd be reading
if you didn't have a hint
.
but this poem's all nice and tidy
and i hope that you will dig
take note, i'm not alone
when starting out just like a pig
.
for all the world's great artists
who have skills, armed to the teeth
have covered up with swirls of paint
the pencil marks beneath
