Poets Be Brave


A poet can say
Things in a way
That seem, they may
Uncanny.

Of things today
And yes, yesterday.
Using words to play
Their feelings.

All 'true' crave.
Some rant, some rave,
The perfect way -
Eh, what's grammar.

Pen is king, Poet knave
Men and women truly brave.
I will never be afraid,
of rejection.
