poetry sucks

By Jei   

poetry sucks, it does not pay one single bill
can I eat poetry when my stomach has to be filled
my head's full of prose but none equals to cash
can I get 40.00 on 6 with that poetry gas

kids want toys and treats from the store
I'll write them a poem they won't want no more
I'll fill them with words so eloquently spoke
I'll watch their eyes open and become mentally woke
but none of that matters if my ass is still broke

poetry's my outlet,my way as to vent
but I can use my outlet to pay the back rent
getting published takes skill and agreed with some luck
I haven't stopped trying ,I'm not passing the buck
just tired of sitting in an immovable rut
so until it starts paying , poetry sucks.
