A poet is


A poet is naturally a cynical person at best,

A poet is always critical, good times or under duress

I am not ashamed of this fact, no need to keep get it off my chest

I am simply giving the truth, poets are a glass half empty crowd at best


A poet is writing at his peak when mocking a given fact

Feeling no need to keep good feelings intact

like a cook, we mix up a recipe and see how our guests react

We are disreputable at best and many think us to be cracked


A poet is a neurotic, we do not really care what others may say

We quibble, we scribble and wander our own way

We write on papers but in reality, we can only bleat and blay

And in the end it is we who are unceremoniously kicked out of the way


So rebel, loose life, cynicist, neurotic, in training

Writing or complaining, or simply feigning

A poet is still an person, on barely any self sustaining

but proud to be an artist of an age fast waning

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
