It Can Be What Is Known As A Hungry Belly Game - Poem by Francis Duggan

In penning of rhyme for me no money or fame
It can be what is known as a hungry belly game
I add to my growing number of rhymes every day
But only for enjoyment and never for pay
I do enjoy rhyming of this why should i lie
And i hope to be doing it till the day i do die
And though my worth as a rhymer i have reason to doubt
So many things for me to write rhymes about
It was love of rhyme made a rhymer of me
I penned my first rhymes in nineteen seventy three
And going back in Seasons this seem long ago
And since time that rusts iron has become my foe
In penning of rhyme for me no money or fame
It can be what is known as a hungry belly game.
