HOW T’IS WITH ME

T’is born but a simple thing,
… a poem … that is…,
simple and yet born quite complex
for wanting else should never be.
as words born are birthed simple free,
whose voice for me must ever ring,
for words for me must ever sing.
I’m born just a simple poet lads
and ladies who stand idly by the door.
Rebuked I am by the holy church,
and looked down upon by my frosty kin
who wished far less when birthed in life for me
by the whole lot of frosty errant kin;
and as t’is liken to such a simple thing,
… for a poet … like me … to be that is…,
… for a poem … crying out to be …
such it is that I was born to be
simple and yet birthed most complex,
for wanting else should never be,
as words cost are simple free,
and that t’is simple, simply complex me. 7/26/12
