Ten rules for a poet


Come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can do it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Don't be shy
That's the first rule
Don't tell lies
And you'll be cool
And don't be afraid
That's the second
Use life's blade
And you won't be mistaken

So come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Do't be lazy
That's the third
Just amaze thee
And fly like a bird
Don't lay down
That's now four
Or you'll drown
And be no more

So come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Don't be an idiot
Now that's the fiveth
Because you can't get rid of it
That's the poets wealth
Don't be an asshole
Now that's six
So be in control
As your writing does tricks

So come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Don't be stupid
Now that's seven
Because your not cubid
And you'll go to heaven
Don't be greedy
Yes that's eight
And help the needy
Before it's to late

So come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Don't be smart
Now that's nine
Just write from the heart
Line by line
Don't be a loser
That's number ten
And you could drive life's cruiser
With the power of the pen

So come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be

Come on
Let me hear you now
Come on
You can say it some how
Come on
Write down what you see
Come on
It's the only way to be
