Could I just say—

Could I just say—

in my defence,

that I am what I am,

and that is a ham poet.

Not ‘ham’ as in the porcine definition,

but ‘ham’ as in ‘ham actor’.

Taking this factor

into account

amounts to not a lot.

Therefore, should you wish

to define me as a cold fish

just remember that I am swimming

in the poetry sea,

and care not to be served up

upon a dish.
