Davetheleg Poem by David Darbyshire


Rating: 5.0

I never went to school,
I havn't read many books.
I don't try to be cool,
get lots of funny looks.

I love to write poetry,
but my grammer ain't so good.
I try to write with humor,
I think everybody should.

So I take pen to paper,
or fingers to the keys.
And write something funny,
for everyone to please.

Seldom, it comes out good,
most times it's really bad.
I never give up, and
by no way, am I ever sad.

Please read and enjoy,
every poem I deploy.
I am sure I will raise a smile,
as big as my poems in a pile.

Yes, you always raise a smile, Dave. But....why the strange title? I've heard of Jake the Peg but not your version. Love, Fran xx

Even when 'your grammar ain't so good', you still make me smile.

You always raise a smile and sometimes a downright good ole belly laugh. Thanks David.

David, you are a very modest sweet man and poet. All that other stuff, is a proof readers job for the more sensitive of us poetic souls who don't do spelling and punctuation too well. Someone has to give them a job! and it's the art that comes through, that is the important thing to remember. Not everyone can bring a smile, and no one quite like you. Keep up the grand work, Smiling at you, your cornland friend, Tai
