Sod it

I havenít written for a while,
I thought sod it,
I still think that,
Poetry is like a self inflicted pat on the back,
Nobody really knows what others think.
I guess 90% of it is keeping up with the Jonesesí,
Sod the Jonesesí.

Welcome back with a welcome read in true Mick Bean style, much enjoyed, sod 'em dem Joneses!

Hello Mick,
I know exactly how you feel, I ofttimes throw in the towel myself but I always come back to it, like an old pugilist - hahaha! To hell the Joneses and soldier on. A straightforward poem, honest and poetically astute. Very well done.

Stay safe.

Kind regards, Tony.

ken d williams The PoetBay support member heart!
Poetry is as it is
It's what we do
I more see my self
As more a verselater
Rather than a poet
I for one dont expeck to much
All I ask those who read
To read my works
Hope they find somert
In what they read writ by me
