The Tag Of The Rhymer With Me Till I Die - Poem by Francis Duggan

To say i am a poet would be broadcasting a lie
The tag of the rhymer with me till i die
What is good or bad verse is not for me to say
I just do my own thing and live in my own way

For many years i have been a rhyming buff
And i am one of those who has penned heaps of stuff
The rhymes do come to me i just pen them down
But not for financial gain or for renown

It is said about poets they are born not made
But everyone needed in the wordsmith trade
Great playwrights and novelists and poets in the few
One might say to that tell us something that's new

In far away fields i did pen my first rhyme
And that is going back near four decades in time
The years have left me looking weary and gray
And physically i have known a far better day

Some tell me i ought to give rhyming away
But to their advice any heed i do not pay
For as long as the breath of life i do retain
The yearn to pen more rhymes in me will remain.
