if you see by the side of the site
they display….
so many poetries of mine are highlighted..
it’s not that no one knows me,
it’s sad I know no one
I’m just a small poet
out of maybe over ten thousand
maybe more or less …
sad I didn't know
having composed over 9000 poems all over
that today was poetry day
how I wish I had known
and upon the souls of celebrities
they call Stars
my actorial kind of poetry display…
the truth is I enter ones soul,
old or young,
just born or enroute for creamation
then I feel how they must feel
that very moment,
as they enter or leave this worldly environment

Do tell the poetry society of UK,
many in that place know me too
anyone can ask Johnnydod of Wiki
sad, he kept this news from me,
but poetry is not bread and butter
tis my first love for me.
