The Poor Man's Poet

(A Carnival Barker) There’s no shame in my game, I write to entertain This is from my upcoming book that has no name. Poetry that entertains. I am the halftime show always ready to go... A delightful distraction, sharing that verbal interaction. I’m a good time on two feet An Army of one. And a legend in progress... As history repeats itself, and criminal’s return to the scene of the crime. I like reciting my poetry before an audience each and every time. My name is Bobby K, and I am The Poor Man’s Poet. Another wizard of the word that live in Williamsburg. I appear before you like an apparition on a mission. Reaching deep within your intellect, bringing forth knowledge in the form of old forgotten memories, that become epiphanies. Making you aware, that you now know what you didn't know a moment ago. Here tonight, right now in this room, I am a little man among poetic giants. A veritable light weight in the power of the word. But as I'm relatively new in the history of poetry. You'll have to forgive me as I find myself at fault, for being wise within my ignorance... My name is Bobby K, and I am The Poor Man's Poet.

Dig the hustle and flow of this cool ink quill shuffle, Bobby K!! Give us more, is what the people always holla for. Eye hopping, finger popping poetry at it's best chill tone behavior. You just picked up a new fan. May love light your path in life always. Romantic Warrior

Good luck with your book. There’s nothing like opening the box and holding one of the books in your hands.
