(The author of this poem has presented hundreds of poets in local public readings... )
Long before medieval times, ever since man can remember,
poets from different shores have been graciously around.
Yet, they have been categorized under three classifications:
Known poets, unknown and anonymous poets.
True. There were also the classics,
but as you well know by now.
"good or bad (like always happened with art)
lays in the eyes of." You know what.
Today it is far more complicated, we have poets of all types
and I don't mean dead good poets or poets currently alive.
No. Everywhere there are poets whose words may cut like a knife.
and aspiring poets.
and blue collar poets.
and free verse poets.
and poets looking for a residence.
I have seen underground poets
and poets who show no class.
But if that is not enough,
yes, there are why not?
Grass roots poets
Center city poets
and poets who don't perform.
There are also ethnic poets
Good looking poets
and poets who don't look good.
Let's not forget seasoned poets.
New- in -town poets.
make believe poets.
Besides the neighborhood poets
there are truly unnoticed poets
and poets who don't get lucky.
I don't want to put aside
Low esteem poets
Spaced out poets
Crying baby poets
and poets who do not cry.
