6 Responses to Be A Poet

  1. Pete Muzzy says:

    To write a haiku,
    Five syllables then seven,
    Then there are five more

  2. Much Gooder says:

    Poetry related poetry? Isn’t that like using someone else’s easy button to find your easy button?

  3. Elwood says:

    Though a chicken may write a nice hymn,
    That one’s financial future is grim
    It will not pay the money
    To keep him disposed sunny
    If his money were a light, t’would be dim.

  4. Connor says:

    Well at least the chicken is honest, not all this “i need to express human emotion” rubbish.

  5. The Muse says:

    Poets only get paid chicken feed anyway. Don’t know what’s wrong with that…

  6. Clarissa says:

    I would bet less than 1 out of a thousand poets can even feed themselves by writing alone.

    The world is not exactly crying out for poets. That’s what makes it a cartoon! That’s the joke.
