Thank God

I’m terrible at poetry

I can’t recite any poems

I lack lyrical verses

And rhyming schemes

My pacing is off

Thank God

Because I’d be a terrible poet

For starters, I like eating

There are some who can

Make a living writing poetry

Not me

No doubt, I won’t give in

Writing and reading poetry

But let’s be realistic

I’ll woo no women

Inspire no movements

With my third grade wordplay

I’ve heard that Julius Caesar

Wrote poetry — as far as I know,

That’s not what he’s known for

At least he and I will have

One thing in common

And you? What’s your legacy?
