    Even when a poet is great
    She needs to be nurtured
    Maya Angelou, played and drank
    Hence, the nomenclature

    Langston Hughes knew the blues
    Busing tables, waiting...
    Funny thing ~ owing dues
    Famous ain't in faces

    Even though a poets great
    His words may go unloved
    Dying for that fatal break
    Good men, due, pass on

    Our j-o-b is writing poems
    Our art... to suffer strife
    No, classified for me (polite)
    What happened to the lights? :confused:

    were you feeling unappreciated when you penned this..or reflecting upon the greats (kowing that their passion in life was laced with pain)...you say what you have to say in a concise way and you do it well....nice peace...
