From Oxford and Cambridge I travel far and wide,
Above the towers of paper, filling the void each side.
Bring forth the battle with the modern day quill,
Illustrious words, create suspense and thrill.
Salvation I seek in the power of the word,
Stories and poems, a voice to be heard.
Free your mind! Don’t falter and stray.
Imaginations told & thoughts to sway.
With my wings spread wide, I was full on flight,
With the pen I was armed, ready to write.
A persistent poet…with a requisite to think,
I’ll spin fourteen lines, without spilling any ink.
With the copyright symbol I stamp my name.
I own, I concur! and nothing will be the same.
