(ain't it the truth?)

A writer’s life for me!
Forget the minks
And cruising seas—
I’ll take the $1.50, please.
A writer’s life for me.

It’s so much fun, you know—
Creating worlds
From git to go—
All the highs and all the lows.
It’s so much fun, you know.

I’d do it anyway!
If I were paid not
One red cent
And had to scrape
To pay the rent
Or sleep outdoors
In a canvas tent—
I’d do it anyway….

Not in a canvas tent,
Not far behind with regards the rent,
But writing for me seems heaven sent,
For you as well it seems it is apparent,
Humorous,the way to live life,
To avoid any stress and strife,
Don't we wish we'd learned this long ago,
Like maybe from our dads and moms, yes our parents...

This was quite fun, wish I had found it that I got you on my tracker, I will see them and enjoy them faster...KeePeace, Ed & Rufuz
