De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions 

Sting wrote those lines when he was with The Police. He’s a talented poet, as are many songwriters. I started to write some poetry tonight. It’s something I’ve briefly dabbled in before, not to much critical acclaim. Poetry to me is using language to capture feeling. I’m not good with feelings or emotions. Or sharing my innermost thoughts. I love language and words, but Robert Frost I am not.

I think I'll leave the poetry to the professionals.

What I wrote amounted to what a Hallmark card would look like if they turned a bunch of trained monkeys loose with a pen and a thesaurus. I won’t be sharing the results. I think I’ll stick with sarcasm and snark. That’s what I do best.
