Dungeons of time

In the dungeons of time

my poetry does lie
i assure you poets
I'm not yet going to die

nor has the hour come
to say goodbye
that heavens alone know why

do not over my dreams cry
I ain't a celebrity yet
that's why

Isn't it strange how so many poets are unknown during their own lives?

but guys who control a PRIZE
say so and so is a poet
they don't guys
like me praise
as I will be one
when others are forgotten
for times to come
Like Shakespeare and Frost
now have your pun

Beautiful poem, as always :)
