When You are Chosen as Poet Laureate

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall

Do you suppose someday you’ll see your name
In the content pages of an Oxford book
An Oxford book of verse for this or that
Among the greats (who will want your autograph)

Do you suppose you’ll ever see your name
Across the top of Amazon.com
The poet of the week, the month, the year
Or, Heaven knows, the poet of the century

But if not, write anyway – you’ll hear your name
Whispered among the pages of Paradise
