My Unofficial Birthday Poem – May The Fourth Be With You.


It was fifty-five years ago today.

I was born in the very muddle of the month of May

Since then I’ve been honing my rhymes

And pursuing a poetical pathway through life

At times, I have incurred the wroth (or the wrath)

Of readers and listeners.

But, on occasion, I have received plaudits –

Though audits have shown these to have been mere irregularities.

Now, at ease with my words, I feel that there is no crime

In being a poet of my time.
