Why Do I Write Poetry?


Why do I write poetry?

I question this myself

Why go to all the trouble when

It brings no dollar wealth?


Financial gain is something which

Might sometimes come – or not

You do it for yourself my friend

Something you've forgot

Well said Don! ? I'd rather be a poor writer than a rich person with no thoughts to put on paper!

Brians's checked his bank and found
There's no input from WOL
Forget you're illustrious paying career Brian
Looks like you're now on the dole ?
