There are some of us, not contest inspired
Who write of our lives and all that's transpired
We write of our pain and we write of joy
Our own themes and memes, are what we employ
Our muses amuse, huff contests away
They dance in our minds, and call us to play
no rules and no prize, just sweet company
when readers come by to share poetry
So please don't feel bad if we don't obey
We hear our own drum that makes our words sway
we don't get as much, as all of you do
But, please come on by, and have a look too
Perhaps you will find, a nice tasty treat
Not sponsor approved; but still it is sweet
No contest for me, and how about you?
I'll still come on by-though my views are few!
HA HA HA HA HA HA! Tongue in cheek, but as my Pappy says, "I joke about serious things, and I say serious things in jokes."
