Food for Thought

(For your next poem)

I could have helped you here
but I dislike death poems
I have struggled years
rather decades to stay alive
there is only one life
It is my surmise

so in life
I'd positively like to rise
and
help others likewise.

I can give you a fish to eat
but rather I'd lay a net
for you to catch aplenty
so more will share
what lies within
'tis sheer poetry
all Neopoets know it

and soon you also will

My poetic teacher once told me

so I converted it into her poetry

She did not live long enough
to reply me

lived across the HUDSON

''I can give you a fish to eat
but rather I'd lay a net
for you to catch aplenty
so more will share
what lies within
'tis sheer poetry
all Neopoets know it....''
