The Happy Poet

Who ever heard o’ a happy poet
Does such a creature exist?
If one be, I surely haven’t met
One without scars on the wrist
Scribbling and scratching only to forget!

What kinda poet, can hold a job?
With words flooding out of your face
Do they think you laugh or you be a slob?
Locked in your room with wine for days
Running and hiding from the invisible mob

Happy little poet, possessed little witch
Those dogs nipping at your feet
writing and writing relieves the itch
Don’t bother standing, stay in your seat
Happy poets living in black pitch!

    Hey, this made me smile! 'Does such a creature exist?' - No, I haven't come across one. Poetry embarks on a less traveled path and as such it finds questions to which no suitable answers can be provided leading to frustration. Well written piece Andrea!

    A pleasure to sit and read poetry this morning. We are getting snow from the Hurricane and the cold northern air coming down from Canada here is Piqua, Ohio this morning. I am glad your excellent poem was one that I came across to read. I hope you are having a good day and if you are in the mist of this weather that you are safe and remain safe Andrea. Love, Carol
