Why Poets Are Poet - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Poets are the first class citizens of the country,
They are the interpreters of the future through
The eyes of the gods that call them into service.
They are well respected and feared in the society;
Their words can endanger or even kill you.

Poets are not talkative like a lay man in the society.
Quietness is their friend, silence their golden spoon.
They are awake thinking while you sleep yourself out
You can't see them dressed to be addressed by the thugs in the society but, they are the eyes that people see through.

They are authoritative in nature, commanding millions to their imaginative eyes and mouths.
Poets are performances, artist, directors, creators,
Motivators, and doctors; doctors of love lines
Which breaks the walls of the heart's ribs.

You can't get poets in any act of controversy;
Unreason chicken soup that does not uplift the soul,
Like the musicians who goes about naked and stupid.
Poets are calm like the rabbit, beautiful like the roses.
Their words, many hurry to listen to and learn from.

They have no licence but they can drive without been
Arrested by those law enforcement agency.
They have no breast but they can breast feed a baby with words that are rare to find by mothers.
Poets are loving, imaginers, curators and educators.

Orancle they are; made to be in the midst of men!
gods they are; correcting the wrong of the society!
Who has seen a poet and did not turn to have another look of the gorgeous angel that just passed him.
Poets are legislatures and their pens, are the judiciary.

Poets are witches flying with their spirits so high.
You can see them here and there penetrating men' souls.
Love them the way they are if you love your life,
Dine with them and make your life perfect to behold.
Poets are lovable, eloquent and dream driving people.

    They have no breast but they can breast feed a baby with words that are rare to find by mothers.
