Wordsmith or Poet

I won third pace in the July, 2013 Aspiring Writers Short Story Contest for my poem:


            Wordsmith or Poet?

With writing novels I’ve had some luck

With poetry though my luck’s not much


With words that I try to make rhyme

I’m not so successful most of the time


My writing style will make you smile

My poetry turns your smile to a scowl


My novels usually have a surprise end

About my poetry you say, “Where’s he been?”


Bookstores sell my novels for 14.90

For my poetry they say kiss my hinny.
