Poetry Man

I ain't no flimflam man,
Don't like no poetry spam. 
I am just what I am,
I am a poetry man. 

I ain't no poetry police, ma'am. 
Its [It's] just bad English gets my gam. 
I misspell with the best of tham. 
I am a poetry man. 

I ain't no hip-hop slam jam. 
Ain't no fight with the girlfriends--bam!
No neurotics in my plan,
I am a poetry man. 

I like birds and bees and fishes that swam,
That don't make me no Hallmark man. 
If they use my verses, so be it, Sam. 
I am a poetry man. 

I ain't no haiku man. 
Don't try to imitate what they do in Japan. 
Word puzzles just ain't me, Pam. 
I am a poetry man. 

I ain't no girlie man. 
Sting like a bee and expose the sham. 
Will not tiptoe like Peter Pan. 
I am a poetry man. 

I think.  Therefore, … I am. 
 
Reading at the Sprng Bling. Dr. Donna Kimble, poet and English professor, holds my copy.
