Laid To

Laid to rest

It is no secret
Everything is on hire or to let
You can purchase votes on payment
The poems can be made famous at present

You just go for hire
Many unknown supporters may admire
Even if your poems are rated third
Favor is shown by commented words

We shall find poets with books
In hand showing cook's picture
Poetry is set aside
Stories are covered wide

It may business tactics
But involves no ethics
You are for outright sale
The poets have nothing of that sort to tell

Who reads them?
No one
Except few who purchase on request
Other things are left to rest
