The Poet and the Legend

Updated on August 19, 2012

Any references to any characters or people, whether living or dead is complete coincidence and only exist in my own imagination.

One was a legend of Hubpages

known far and wide

his work in the written word

none better.... could you find

From the shores of a far lake ...

he sent his poems and writes

social communication... was his style

in the form of small gigabytes

Yes.. he was loved by all

at least..... they told him so

praise they heaped upon his site

telling him to.... never go

Along now comes.. the Poet

respectful.... as well as he can

writing poems of Broken Hearts

explaining....that he is only a man

His poems attract the.... Lovelys

the Sweet.. the Shy... the Nice

his words are sugar coated

and sometimes filled... with spice

The filled with envy

howled.... steal my fan's, how dare

he....think writes better poems than me

I will strip his soul so bare

I will berate his words

leave him behind... like a car racer

dirty his image... with my style

after all he is only a skirt chaser

I have class and evoke images

of pomp and circumstance

I will slice open his dream

with my social music lance

After the Poet was Cleaned of Respect

the Legend went on his merry way

he still garners his shallow awards

he is still the best...

his blind followers all say

      LOL You brought a smile to my face. Michael, everyone is unique in their own way. You are a true romantic from the heart, your poems are flowy and sparkly. Don't compare yourself because there is no point, see, you don't compare colors or music notes, right? To each it's own, you a unique star on the sky and nothing can change that!

      I don't know who you are refering to unless you can see into my mind.

      you seem to be expressing your opinion on my write of two fictional characters. ? maybe you THINK you know these FICTIONAL characters , but I would opine that you have quite an imagination also.
