I Stole This Poem

I stole this poem, yes I did
It isn't mine to publish
But every word I write myself
On paper reads like rubbish.

This gem says all I want and more
It shines my beacon bright
It's everything I would have said
If I knew how to write.

Women, gold and accolades
May rain down from the sky
I deserve to taste these things
Just once before I die.

I stole this poem, yes I did
To my eternal shame
I pierce my conscience with my pen
And sign my bloody name.

This Old Man

This old man named Balco
He lived down the stair
With old fashioned trousers
And thinning white hair

He scares me a little
When he bids me good day
I reply a quick 'hi'
And then soon fly away
