ME

A Poem by Dr. Wood ?
"

After a lot of thought I have decided NOT to post serious poems. I know nowt about 'real' poetry, a fact that has been made obvious to me since returning. Hence my reviewing will decrease..sorry

"

ME


I’m not a ‘real’ poet me.

I’m the cosy warm seat in a cold prison cell,

a comfortable consolation.

I’m not an uncharted unfathomable Ocean.

I’m more like the bath water me,

safe but not shallow, warm and relaxing.

I’ll never be up for awards,

treading the boards on the stage of great literature.

I’m a vendor of verses, a jolly court jester.

It’s easy to see through me.

I slip into verse at the drop of a dime.

I’m madly and sadly addicted to rhyme.

I’m the torch in your pocket for when it gets dark,

the life boat that might keep you safe from the Sharks.

I’m uncomplicated.

Some might say dated,

quite unrelated to ‘real’ poetry.

In the circus of life I’m a clown.

I’ll give you a lift whenever you’re down.

So the next time you’re reading one of my pieces,

don’t analyze it, it’s not a thesis.

You won’t need a compass a map or a key;

‘cause I’m not a ‘real’ poet me.

Doc I hope this isnt a crisis of conscience brought on by that Liston bloke's critique.
He's part of the troll network I've been uncovering on WC.
So many fakers, you wouldn't believe. It's all been constructed to pander to a few "writers" (used very loosely) egos.

Youre a bloody fine poet my friend and what's more you're real!!
More real that a very many fake profiles who have been created solely to manipulate the popular writing slots via the ratings.

Youre one of the best Doc. You are a real poet Sir. And a damned fine one.

You don't need to thank me Doc. You're very well received round here and a bright light in the doom .. read more
I would much rather be known as a jester than a poet, at least that way you'd know that the smiles you bring are appreciated. I guess we all have our niche, our labels, but why we can't all just agree to be called worderators is beyond me. :)

ha....worderators, not bad.....And yes being a jester is much more fun
Trying to write a funny poem takes skill.
Mainly because you only get one hit at it.
That's why you don't see a lot of them about.
You have the gift.

Without trying to seem arrogant Paul...I agree. I was born to joke in rhyme

Nothing arrogant about it. If you've got it, flaunt it.
Or poem it. lol
I agree with Queenie. I am skeptic about your theme of depth of writings. Humor can be accomplished only by the deepest of artists.
