This Is Me

This is me; this is what I do best

Sit me down to write scripts for a film

and I'll waste your paper and ink

Ask me to speak to an audience about

hard work and I'll put them to sleep

Put me on stage as a comedian,

and the audience will strangle you for

their money back

Enroll me in a weight-lifting club and

you might be imprisoned for murder

Hire me as a bank teller and you might

arrive at work to meet a very long queue

in front of my counter, not because I'm

providing a very great service but

because I'm in a deep sleep

However, sit me down ones again

behind a beautiful natural scenery with

a paper and pen

That paper and pen will be one day

auctioned for lots of money because

through it was the world's most inspirational poetry produced

This is me; this is what I do best.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
