    I'm an artist

    I mean to get paid

    Not lethargic

    I'd rhyme anyway

    As an artist

    I love to create

    I'm the artist

    In a scene who

    Gets laid ;)

    Not the LARGEST

    King of the trade

    Or the smartest

    Incoming grenade ~

    With a fondness

    For ink on a page

    I'm an artist...

    Digging his grave

    Dear Poet Brother 1poetsought,

    This piece sent my emotions on a whirlwind tour. The first lines:

    I'm an artist

    I mean to get paid

    Not lethargic

    I'd rhyme anyway"

    had me giggling and smiling.

    By the time I read:

    "I'm the artist

    In a scene who

    Gets laid"

    I was shaking my head.
    And then all that bravado
    ended here:

    "For ink on a page

    I'm an artist...

    Digging his grave"

    ...and I felt incredibly sad.

    It takes a bit of mastery, my poet friend, to send a reader through so many colors of emotions with so few words. I've been here...yes, I have. Thank you for this, master poet.

    (smile)
