It Is Not For Fame Or Fortune

It is not for fame or for fortune that the urge for to write in them is strong
It is just that they find contentment in writing for they are the makers of song
They write just for their own enjoyment a short story, poem or a play
Without any wish to become wealthy and famous they are not ambitious in any way

They are not known as masters of language who can boast of a literary degree
Writing to them just a hobby they do not take themselves seriously
The people who will never be honored in a civic reception or a street parade
But if there were not any writers there would not be a wordsmith trade

Not seen to be worthy of literary criticism unlike those who are deemed to write well
As those whose stories are looked on as inferior their poems dismissed as doggerel
Yet not everyone sees them as losers in their local communities where they are known
For their writing skills they are admired and honored as those of our own

It is not for literary fame or fortune that they spend their free time every day
In writing a poem or short story or a never to be published play
They write for enjoyment only without any desire for literary renown
Yet in their own way they are famous on their own side of the town.
