The Poets

You can stop a mechanic 
And the business he's got 
You could smolder his tools 
You could pillage his shop 

You can hold-up a ship-write 
Or a sailor at sea 
But you can't stop a poet 
The poets are free 

You can stop politicians 
Make the diplomat run
You can start a petition 
With the flick of your tongue

You can harry a fighter 
With a blow to the knee 
But you can't stop a poet 
The poets are free

    WE CAN stop everyone. WE outnumber them. Now poets, we are nobodies to the masses. But they need to read up, or get beat up or peed on, with our feet on their beat skeet teat. Ok...I will stop with the Marshall Mather's Maddness! Your 2nd to last line reads "But you C A N stop a poet"---did you mean "can't"? It doesn't matter. Dope poem!

    Yes indeed my friend. The pen is mightier than the sword. It's the same in everything. You might be able to byully someone into fearing you but you can't control what he thinks of you. Your thoughts are always your own. great job here. God Bless, JB

    Love this Kyle, one for my favs - poets indeed are maybe the salt of the earth for we express so much in our own unique way. Take care dear friend. :)
