Poetry Is

Poetry. Its not just for coffee tables, doctors surgeries, or lavatories

Its not just for your diary, the mirror, or libraries

Its not just for editors, agents, or publishing houses

Its not just for the privileged, the beautiful, or the famous

Its not just for lovers, the young, or for laughs

Its not just for Christmas, Birthday, or Valentines Day cards

Its not just for other poets, laureates, or thespians

Its not just for drama queens, the self-absorbed, or the vain

Poetry is the great unifier that knows no frontiers of space or time

A tool to expand the boundaries of ones human soul

And the limitations of ones mind
