Lately, while I was
Scouring the internet
A shock I felt
Up on learning
A tragic news
A google-found friend
On the western end of
But for a while
To my grief
Had turned brief.
What a depriving blow

To poetry fans
Words of wisdom
From his mind that flow.
Hope and salvation packed

Late at night
Lying in bed

but I hesitate to expose our
ignite impostor syndrome...
all live wires
that threaten to electrocute
our fragile muse
of a numbed,
So, instead of shouting...

After She Made It to the News papers life was never same again
people recognised her as a POET, it became a blooming pain
In Tesco everyone would look, in the chemist they would wink
Being a famous Poet was harder than anyone would think
She tried to solved her problem when in a red wig she would walk

In the end she stayed in d...
