and sucking up
I learned what it’s all about

you can ‘t just have talent
and sit on your bum all day
it won’t come to you-
you’ve got to make the
travel a hundred or a few
be put up in digs that are
less than adequate
read the poems that suit
the audience
deal with the hecklers
and drunks
and people who seek
your autograph and come
onto you
and mikes that don’t work
but I keep on truckin’
for fame not fortune
and the love of it all
and the accumulating
posters on the wall.
