My writes are the truth throughout
That’s my claim, you see, and I Pray
You understand, the unwritten law
Of poetry: ‘ poetic license’, my say.
If I may, I’ll water that down a bit.
One may use that law to add zest
To a write that may lack the same;
It’s really the writer’s call, I guess.
I have to say, what if one should
Decide to use the second guess?
That’s not fair, that’s using words
To create a cover-up, for zest.
Well anyway, I’ll do it my way,
As I said, the truth is mine to tell.
That is the way I see it, now
And ever, that will be my call.
What I write is for your pleasure.
That is something I will not ever
Second guess. Take my measure
As a man, that is my truth,
Now and forever.
