If I Said I'm A Poet - Poem by Francis Duggan

If I said I'm a poet I'd be telling a lie
A rhymer I'll be till the day that I die
I commenced writing rhymes in my physical prime
And I am one who has penned many a rhyme
That so many refer to themselves as poets with me is okay
Since each to their own as some do like to say
We are what we think we are that's how it does seem
To promote the self can be good for self esteem
But the truth of the matter and I'm not saying anything that's new
When I say that poets as ever are few
Not many true poets in the big World out there
And their kind are not to be found everywhere
I never refer to myself as a poet
Nor am I one worthy of literary note.
