about

Dedicated to the many poets, both actual and poets of the mind, I have met.

lyrics

Oo la laa well I'll never get too far
But I'd say something crass, about the writing on the wall,
'cos the poems in my heart are not worth reading at all,
but if you could see my soul, my love shinning gold..

The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

I'd search the internet, to find that Dylan song,'cps the tune that's in my head is bound to come out wrong.
I hope when you look at me, you see through my idiocy,
the poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

I know that you think, I'm a wise and traveled man, but inside I'm still a teenager, lost without a plan,
if you gave me a map, I'd lose it where I'm sat,
'cos the poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

I try to keep that map, find my way, to the treasure trove,
shore of plenty.
You're a goddess, better off without me,
The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.

Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
Watch out, or i'll stick you in my poem!
The poem writes the song which sings the story in my heart.
