Must I be a Premi'm Member…
To be a worthy contender?
Must my name be kissed by a star…
For my poems to travel far?
No cov'rage for me on FB?
Don't you think that makes me grumpy?
Right now my finances are tight
So I am stuck in this sorry plight
Thought my words had their own appeal
So I’m waiting to close this deal
Poetry Soup, you feed my soul
But exclusion's taking a toll
Won’t let the battle of the “views”
Compound my monetary blues
My bonus I'd earmarked for this
Got traded for my daughter’s kiss :)
She went abroad to find her dreams
More important to me that seems
The Star Membership will have to wait
Be patient…I’m just running late! :)
