Joining the souper’s
Three years ago I wrote my songs
But just for me alone
They stayed with me and my family
My words they were not known
By anyone, I did not dare
To send these songs around
I thought I wrote a heap of crap
But then one day I found…
By sending them to face book
I got some nice comments
And so I joined the souper folk
So off to them I sent
Some of my poems most every day
And they did treat them well
And most of them were real sincere
They liked them, I could tell.
They never said when I got it wrong
When commenting on their stuff
Cause I’m not good at reading poems
I’ve never read enough
And some stuff I don’t understand
Though I do my very best
And I’ve mucked up a good few times
When entering their contests.
So now I’d like to thank these folk
For putting up with me
I’ll be on this site for a long, long time
Cause it really makes me happy
To write my songs and send them off
To such a lovely site
It’s such a gorgeous place to be
And me, I love to write.
