Ode to Darryl Ashton

An ‘International Poet’ Is his own claim to fame With seven books all published It seems he knows his game He covers many genres Satire to tragedy He wants his special messages To impact you and me Some poems are his very own It’s not too hard to tell The rhythm often faltering And he doesn’t rhyme too well But sometimes there’s an entry That stops you in your track When something seems familiar And then your brains you rack Where could I have seen it? I’ve read it all before I told my friends about it They told me to make sure And so I searched the Internet And I looked everywhere Then there it was, the self same one And the author’s name was there! So I put pen to paper To say I was surprised That he had said he’d written it The work was plagiarised He never got back to me He hasn’t made a sound But I’ll stick around for now Although he’s gone to ground Written by Ros Hicks 5th December 2018

S**t happens when you get caught being a plagiarist ...
