I Just Do It For The Enjoyment
I hear this all the time:
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
So you're a writer?
What else do you do?
How much money do you make? '
I write poetry!
So you like to write 'poooems'?
I use to do that,
When I was in elementary school.
You make money from doing that? '
I just do it for the enjoyment!
You're one of those sentimentalists?
One driven by emotions and unresolved issues?
Confused by life!
And abused by a dysfunctional upbringing.'
But I currently have two books out!
But no one's into reading poetry! '
I didn't say I read it!
I write it!
You 'must' be doing it for the money? '
'You want me to help you? '
