For all my artist & writer friends out there. Remember your “LIKE COUNT” is NO indicator of quality!

02 Oct 2015 – Sonnet

Do you waste hours, weeping for the hand
that hard-assed fate has dealt and you must play?
No over-arching strategy, no brand-
name recognition, sweet flirtatious fame
keeps shunning you, like some poor teen with zits,
no matter how you puke up on the page
the thunder of your heart! It gives you fits
to watch the “also rans” become the rage!
Swept up in windstorms dirty markets make,
you’ve now confused the goals of craft and fame.
The pools the herds may frequent, there to slake
their thirsts may still be fithy, all the same!
Ten-thousand buzzing flies might make your bed,
but that could mean you’re carved from shit – or dead!
