Since I'm One Who Cannot Boast - Poem by Francis Duggan

Since I'm one who cannot boast of a literary degree
What is or is not poetry ask one other than me
I just pen rhyme for enjoyment that and nothing more
I repeat here what I have said often before
Literary experts will tell you a rhymer cannot be a poet
Only one of a minor local literary note
Aspiring poets are many though few make the grade
Still everyone is needed in the wordsmith trade
A local poet in every village and town
Who basks in the glory of local renown
Every local success in words they celebrate
At least by some they are looked up to as great
As for me I am what's known as a rhyming buff
An ordinary bloke who has penned reams of stuff.
