So Often This Is Done - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is difficult to maintain one's rights,
When another takes creative license...
With a purpose to drive,
Their own topic home!
With an assisted 'lift'
From what is already produced...
To do what it is they like with it!

Innovation this is not.
An ability to steal?

And so often this is done,
By those who 'call' themselves writers...
Poets or anyone without a vision,
To recycle or restate what someone has written.
To advance whatever it is they have...not,
To pass on as their own creativity!
