WHERE IT ALL RHYMES

WHY I'M HERE

BACK TO MY RHYMES

 

When you think of writing poetry

It sounds a little naff

Don't sit and have a go at me

It started as a laugh.

Some jokes to make somebody smile

Some Links to earn some cash

But then, after just a short while

My rhymes started to clash.

On one day, it was jokes and fun

the next day Links for money,

but then it came out serious,

stroies that were'nt funny.

The things that roll around my head

from one day to the next,

Are often things that cause me grief

and leave me all perplexed.

So I sit at my desk at night

My only quiet time

And put my thoughts into a verse

and try to make them rhyme.

So whether it's called Poetry

or Rhyme I'm not quite sure.

But one thing that is true to me

I'll keep on writing more.

So if you like these word I write

That's really good to know,

And if they bring you comfort

Then I am pleased that is so.

But even if you don't agree,

if they fill you with dread,

It doesn't make no odds to me,

they still pour out my head.
