He Said

He said you have written a lot but you do not write well
So many like you who do pen doggerel
Such stuff from the memory that is quick to fade
But then everyone is welcome in the wordsmith trade
When younger at such remarks i would have taken offense
But age it has brought me one might say more sense
And since his opinions are his that suits me fine
Since what is his is hardly any business of mine
An educated bloke in his mid thirties though in discernment he does lack
Since he fail to realize that words from once spoken cannot be taken back
The discerning without causing offense speak the truth
It is the callous and arrogant who lack in ruth
He said the type of stuff you pen anybody could write
Though him for his opinion on my work i did not invite.
