A Poet Is Something - Poem by Francis Duggan

A poet is something I could not wish to be
But the rhymes they just seem to keep coming to me
And I add a few more to my numbers each day
But without recognition or without any pay
That anyone can pen rhyme so happens to be true
And for writing so many credit I am not due
Rat rhymes with cat and bee rhymes with tree
It really is simple would you not agree
Many refer to themselves as poet but you may say tell us something new
When I say poetasters are many and poets are few
Of novelists, poets and playwrights few do make the grade
But every writer needed in the Wordsmith Trade
I am just a rhymer that and nothing more
That is something you've often heard me say before.
