216 – Dear Poet

Poem number 216
Dear Poet
Take your head out your bottom, Dear Poet
You’re a servant of language, not more.
The words are the King, you’re merely the thing
That they come through, a simple front door.
No need to be showy, Dear Poet
Simplicity, man, that’s the key!
When choosing adjectives be ultra selective –
Use one word and not ninety-three.
And finally this, my Dear Poet
A writer should n’er be snob
Your skills were a gift to give others a lift
Not a reason to act like a nob.
