Anyone Can Rhyme But Poets Are Few

I repeat here what i have said often before
I write rhymes for enjoyment that and nothing more
Anyone can rhyme Tim rhymes with Jim
And fish as we know they are born to swim
Anyone can rhyme but poets are few
To that you might say tell us something that is new
And though writers are born and cannot be made
Everyone is needed in the wordsmith trade
Long after the last breath of life from him or her has gone
The words of the poet for centuries will live on
And though every writer dreams of being wealthy and famous few do succeed
That for every winner many losers does seem true indeed
Anyone can write rhymes but poets are few
You might say to that do tell us what is new.
