"Relied Upon a Diety"

Survived everything but Sobriety
No way to cope
Relied upon a Diety
To give me hope.

"Laureate of Your Heart"

Francesco Petrarca was one of the first
Picked in 1342
Bernard André was appointed by Henry VII
Robert Penn Warren was U.S. laureate
As have been . .
Robert Lowell
William Carlos Williams
Robert Frost
James Dickey
Billy Collins
Vermont chose Frost, furthermore.

Each one of these poets was crowned
In honor of his Art
I have humbler ambitions:
Laureate of your Heart.

"It's All About Your Pride"

Thingy and Thingamajig
Went out for a Sunday ride
Thingy, said Thingamajig
It's all about your pride!

Thingy considered this,
Then broke down and cried.
