OLD POETS

Have you ever seen an advert to bring you up short:

An invitation in plain English: " Old poets sought"?

If you have, I'll say bravo (and not be satirical)

To salute what is surely a literary miracle.

For no matter where you might be found

Scribbling at sea or with feet on the ground

Whether you be close by or maybe far-flung,

Poetry offers preference to those who are young.

Noted, gents! This came to mind as a result of the apparently
endless openings (especially in competitions) to "young poets".
This slightly mischievous blog is my response.

I am old
Also far-flung
Could that be why
I am unsung?.......
