    There is much to be said about a person that can take a few
    words give them a twist and still make sense
    A wordsmyth I call them with a knack for common sense

    Misunderstood by most and admired by few
    But the admiration of allies will only do

    Because a simple mind will never overstand
    The power of a pencil in the right hand

    Overlooked and ignored by the one track thinker
    Often imitated by the high spirited drinker

    Poets are born that way, what more can I say
    So thank God tonight when you kneel down to pray

    It takes one to know one and then we become one

    yes, it takes one to know one, for certain.... I like this very much. It is a positive spin on (and probably the most accurate definition of) the wordsmith.

    thank you for this... I feel your soul
