Suppose You Are What You Think You Are - Poem by Francis Duggan

Suppose you are what you think you are you say you are a poet
And you believe that you are one worthy of literary note
You are what you believe you are is all that I can say
Though I have yet to hear for you a rousing hip hooray
Still self praise really is not praise which after all is true
And others you they will applaud if applause you are due
Your verses do not seem too bad though they are far from great
You are not the one the poetry lovers choose to celebrate
Still you think you are a true poet and that's what matters most
Though to your own self it does seem you will have to drink a toast
To find a poet it does seem to me one would have to travel far
And not everyone can be a poet though many think they are
You are what you believe you are that's how it seems to be
But of how you feel about yourself others may not agree.
