(This is in response to the Poem
POETRY written by Richard Lamoureux)
I make the most sound but no noise
You'll hear me alright sans my voice.
Richard, look in my face there's no smile
But I won you over standing away many a mile.
Don't I tug at your heart though we haven't met?
You haven't seen any of my magic tricks yet!
Equally at home in a palace or a shanty shack
I have everything I need, nothing more I lack.
Oh, I do fall in; and ya, often fall out of love,
But I am not a cheat, I guess, by Jove!
But here's where we fall apart
A famous person is but a spoiled brat!
What I write, I do not retract or rewrite,
I get called out often, but I know I'm right.
But on one matter you and I do agree
The power of poetry do sets our spirits free!
So here is a poetic challenge for you, Mr. Lamoureux
Pick any of my poems to respond and make me fret or vex!!
