L Cohen does me a personal favour


Out of the thousands
who are known,
or who want to be known
as poets,
maybe one or two
are genuine
and the rest are fakes,
hanging around the sacred precincts
trying to look like the real thing.
Needless to say
I am one of the fakes,
and this is my story.

by L Cohen

Thanks to you, I don't have to write that poem full of fake musings on how I want to be a real poet.
