JOB DESCRIPTION


Have Fame and Fortune
turned you down?
You too can join a group
revered, elite, yet true.
Some education's helpful.
If you knew
some basic culture and
at least one fluent language,
then your primary review
might be a decade
after your adieu.
No guarantee of praise
at your debut.
Self-motivation is a must.
No crew mentality.
Slight overhead is due:
just pencil, pen and ink,
a pad or two.
No Benefits or salary
will accrue.
Though suffering is helpful
don't pursue it,
self-inflicted pain
you must subdue.
So be a poet.
Someone has to do it!
Everybody tries it.
Why not YOU?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
