A Poet's Story


"It's not bad ... now work on it" they said
Not meant to inspire ... just fill with dread
"Don't be silly" was the response to come
"I can write ten more in the same time
as it takes to edit just one"

And so the poet then proceded to show
Just how easily he could do it and grow
Finding two years later he'd amassed
More than fifteen hundred stashed ...

But he also wondered how tame
His response was to the game
For doing it his way was no real win
If others didn't see them all and grin

- Tristram
