There’s all the plays I never wrote
And all the parts I didn’t play
No screenplays either I must say
In fact fuck-all of any note
The theatre world has not been stormed
Just one One Act plays have been performed!
Short stories, novels up the spout
Articles, philosophical tracts
Cultural expression acts
in funny ways – what I’m not out
of in the realm of literate art
Are thousands of poems from my heart
To you, Muse, inspiration, joy.
In bulk at least if not in skill
Of writing poems I’ve had my fill
But only cos it’s you who buoy
My verses up, to make me write
At all has made my poems bright.
