No Money In It - Poem by Francis Duggan

No money in it or neither much fame
For me this penning of rhyme is a hungry belly game
My better days in life in the forever gone
And i must be addictive for to keep rhyming on
I cannot claim myself for to be a poet
Nor am i one worthy of literary note
Yet i enjoy rhyming i write rhymes every day
And only in death hope to give it away
Flower rhymes with shower and bee rhymes with tree
And Ann rhymes with Dan and tee rhymes with fee
Yes it is easy to write rhymes as easy as can be
Anybody can do it you can have this from me
If i said rhyming was a way to earn a living i would be telling a lie
Though i hope to be doing it till the day i do die.
