I decided to try my hand at writing poetry
Not realising that the whole wide world would see
A poetic talent that I never knew I had
Until some kind folk they said that it wasn't bad
So I write about the things, that really interest me
Historical and humourous, rhyming poetry
I compose it, fine tune it and put it on display
And yes it does feel good, if I make someone's day .
And if people's interest's are similar to mine
Yes, it matters to them that they can find my work online
So when they are searching, for humour or history
I hope that in their search, that search points them to me.
Throughout the ages, poets used free verse and rhyme
Writing about life events occurring in their time
So that in the future people they will see
A colourful poetic record of our history
So I believe the answer, to question number three
Is that you can never have enough of decent poetry .
