A poem For poets

A poem For poets

A Poem by Cpt. Alex Rover

Seems true, doesn't it?

A poem for poets is what too many are
A poem for poets will never get far

A write-up for writers is just that
A write-up for writers will never give back

A songbird sings, not for more song
A songbird sings, so that they may carry on

A flower blooms not to lighten the gloom
A flower blooms to stave off its doom

A poem like this will not show you how
But what not to do, you know know
