If I God damn hear it one more time
Hear that my rhyme and I
Are only just starting out
I’ll seriously collar the fecker
“I’ve been writing for years!”
It’s happening
Might not look like it right this minute
But I was sick for a time
A long, long time
So please do me a favour and give my rhyme and I
A chance to dance
Poetry readings can be rough
Something as simple as finding the right pair of reading glasses
Can actually prove quite tough
But I’ll keep on keeping
Do my thing
‘Til I leave my audience smiling, weeping
