Poet’s agony- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

Including the rhyme,

Conserving time.

The poet will write and write,

Only what is right.

Winning the game,

One is after fame.


Using as many,

Styles big and tiny.

It’s all agonizing,

Before compromising,

Burning the midnight oil,

Hot coffee one will boil.


Each has a dream,

Of being the cream,

Publishing a book,

By hook or nook.

Becoming famous,

Preventing the infamous.


Always dreaming,

Of nothing but winning,

As many as awards possible,

All while remaining reasonable.

Using big word in English,

All this in relish,

It’s all a poet’s agony,

Who’s without a penny!
