Off The Cuff

Written completely off the cuff:
Dedicated to Josiah Smart Obi who wrote “Poets are the worst set of people on earth. Prove me wrong with a verse”.

What a droll request!🤔✍️
My guess
Is you’ve been burned
For something that you yearned
To be admired for
Josiah dear,, there’s so much more
Than being praised or
Having talent!
Be a good whate’er you are
And let the poets poetise.
You’d be surprised
They often write with wisdom – can express condensed
The wisdom they dispense.
So, dear Josiah, just admire
Those you read
And let them lead
You to a higher
