No Money, No Poet - Poem by MVJ Simon

There’s no money in poetry
Coz' poets are the biggest fools

Penning for the love of it
Not demanding what is due

Got to change garbs now
And write songs and ad jingles

To sell some color water
And lure a billion people

You get paid a pretty fortune
And they get peptic ulcers

I’ll die a rich jingler
Than live a poor poet
