The Poet In Love



Why does a poet
always fall in love ?

finding expression
in words, not flesh

rolling sad eyes
to the sky above

eternal emotions
ancient, and fresh

Why does a poet
always fall in love ?

with a fragrant lady
on the bus, or beach

and then to lose
the soaring dove

to stretch an arm
and overreach

Why does a poet
always fall in love ?

instead of working hard
like normal folk

some would like
to give a shove

into the real world
beyond a joke

Why does a poet
always fall in love ?

when others are happy
to fight a war

refusing armour
or protective glove

begging his muse
for a little bit more

Why does a poet
always fall in love ?

not really knowing
the reasons why

dreaming soft breasts
dangling above

and fleshy buttocks,
supple thigh
