For A Minority Of People

From writing financially few ever do well
The poets write poetry the poetasters write doggerel
But life is mainly about making money it goes well with fame
And few become famous without heaps of cash to their name
The poetaster and the writer of jingle seem one of the same
And writing for them is a hungry belly game
The literary journey to wealth and fame for most seems too tough
And though writers are many few are good enough
For to become successful where few make the grade
Though every writer is needed in the wordsmith trade
And all around the World in every village, city and town
Young aspiring writers daydream of literary renown
And though it is said from life we receive our due
For a minority of people their daydreams do come true.
