Save us from those scientists and lawyers

Who take up more and more of our time

With make believe/once upon a time stories

That border on being a crime!

They make a very good living

By raising doubts foisted upon us

More geared to taking than giving -

Po-faced and plausible as they con us.

Oh! how true your comment is M.C.

Poetry has an almost supernatural quality in helping aspiring poets to contact a level outside of the little gray cells within our brain box.

What exactly is the muse anyway?

So many topics seen from so perspectives here.

I do miss the critique, amongst the platitudes at times.

Thanks for the kind comment Po. It's pleasing to think our posts and
comments might provide some ease and comfort for others whilst
not losing sight of the main object of poetry: getting people thinking and out of the box.

MC I look forward to reading your responses to other posters and myself as much as the actually post.

BTW: Crime pays my wages! lol

I would hope the scientists back in our labs never see this 😉

Ah...I could have written "Deadpan" but it wouldn't have worked as
well. The expression I did use is an old one - a diminutive of "poker face<d>". With respect, it's been around
even longer than you, Po ! 😔

On seeing this within your verse
A comment he would write
