Us Poets and Writers

Us poets
And writers
See the world
Through our own eyes
And speak
With our own tongues

We try to tell others
Of what we see
And hope they agree
Most of the time
We’re ignored

Except
Every so often
One of us
Succeeds
In getting a message
Across
And they are held
In the highest regard

Wined and dined
And followed
Forever

The rest of us lowlifes
We’ll just keep on trying
Content
With the fact
We’ve got
Something to say
