Posted Notes – The Writer

THE WRITER

 

“You do nothing all day,”

The critics always say.

 

The art of sitting, reflecting, writing –

Not a thing for dinner-party boasting.

 

It lacks the luxury of visibility,

Starkly contrasting to venal money-making;

 

One does not require a suit,

Or need a train to commute

 

To satisfy prejudices,

So as to comply with mores.
