Canto CCCXXIV

Take the gig and don the three piece suit
and sharpen up those trusty one liners,
followed by poems that provide the proof

that you’re a sensitive person of culture.
Sprinkle with a dust of modesty
and grab a beer before they close the bar,

resolve to send your invoice the next day,
remain content you sent the crowd home happy
and hope the final train isn’t delayed

cos in three hours time you’ll be changing nappies.

    The great thing about poetry is that it has so many facets and you can use it in so many ways. Would the elitists sneer at the idea that poetry can be used as entertainment…
    I like the line “remain content you sent the crowd home happy”
