As A Poet

As a poet you have the right to remain silent. If you give up that right. Anything you say can and will be used in the court of public opinion. You have the right to use a computer keyboards. If you cannot afford one, a pen with a piece of paper will be provided for you. You have the right to speak like an Attorney, to take your readers on a trip or a journey. Giving them a feeling of anticipation. Using words out of context or connotation, or use long words like conversation. You have the right to give feelings a voice, to express yourself in every kind and category of poetry, or muster a musical group like the one called Floetry. You have the right, to recite, day or night to speak out loud! in front of a crowd! To make yourself heard! With the freedom of the spoken word! To stand and proclaim, to entertain, Or choose the words to describe your pain! You, have the right to complain. Know that for you, no subject is taboo. Only season your words with grace, as you may have to eat them, if they are thrown back in your face.
