Poets Are Few - Poem by Francis Duggan

Poetasters are many and poets are few
One might say to that tell us something that's new
Out of millions a small per-centage make the grade
But every writer is needed in the Wordsmith Trade
Without the not so good poets we would not have the great
And though only the best the readers celebrate
Each writer important in her or his own way
And that despite what the literary critics do say
So many young writers do daydream of fame
But not everyone can become a great name
Like in all walks of life for one to be wealthy many in poverty
Suppose that's how it is and it will always be
Poetasters are many and poets are rare
A fact I am sure of which you are aware.
