From now on all poets

will be required to wear face masks


this is a precautionary move

designed to protect the innocent poet


from insults, infections

and rotten fruit


we recommend a mask made of steel

one which covers the entire head and neck


this will give them more protection from

angry crowds with pitchforks and torches


plus they can rob a liquor store on the way home

since they could not sell any books


this is the best deal for poets since open mikes

a mask will help them stay anonymous


finally, all poet's should also wear bullet-proof vests

as additional protection from irate audiences


poets put their life on the line every time

they go to a poetry reading.
