Bohemian Poet: a Poem
Oftentimes "it's not what you know, but whom you know"
so a crappy piece of poetry may find its way to top
shallow and confusing with no talent to show
like a painting created with a cleaning mop.
But then in some right hands it turns into gold
reaching a right market and advertised a lot
so it becomes a stock that gets oversold
as people like the crap that's massively bought.
Bohemian by soul, bohemian you'll stay
with all your poetical attempts ever
no matter what your kind of poetry may say
how deep it may be, inspiring or clever.
So write for your fun and for occasional praise
write for expressing what is deep in you
leaving it away from a success craze
and doing it for as long as it feels true.
Without that selling fever you can stop it all
when some other hobby steals your writing times
or when other interest voices its call
to replace this forming words into verses and rhymes.
