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.
