I am dull

I am dull,

dull and boring;

listen to me

and you’ll soon be snoring

Sadly, I’m a poet

and don’t you know it

by the tumultuous round of applause,

I do not get

when I ply my wares;

but, I’m hoping to soon,

one day yet –

if I can get the people

to stay awake just long enough

for me to set

their hearts and minds alight

– literally, of course –

by the rhythm of my words

the rhyme of my—

um… ah… horse?!

Clip-clop, clip-clip,

‘Please make this stop!’

I hear you cry.

Which is quite rude,

but, ‘Okay.’ I reply.

And you rest in silence.
