Some People Advise - Poem by Francis Duggan

Some people advise me to give rhyming away
That 'tis about time that I called it a day
On what is not their business they will have their say
But that is their opinion and with me that's okay
For me to quit rhyming not in my future plan
I hope to keep penning for as long as I can
Those who tell me to quit writing I don't heed their advice
What I do for a hobby remains as my own choice
I never refer to myself as a poet
Nor am I seen to be worthy of literary note
Though penning of doggerel joy to me does bring
'Tis not of my own praises I ever do sing
I write for the love of it and nothing more
I say that again I have said it before.
