Turning Up For Work: Me and Trump

"Inspiration is for amateurs. Professionals turn up and do a day's work." 

So here I am, a newly-turned  professional poet, showing up for work. Given that it's 12:39 pm, it's hardly a great start, but it's a start. 

The Poet 

I am given to self-parody. Many poets are, you'll find.
So, when I call myself the Coleridge of Culver St, you'll kmow
I am not being serious. 

Though - give me my due - if you're calling Donald Trump a President
It should be easy enough to call ME

A Poet.
