Changing Trade

  For a while I gave this some thought
and I must admit at last I join reluctantly

To be a proper poet
is hard work you see.
Words must get together
in perfect harmony.

If 20$ may be considered an award.
it is the reason why most people with this skill
no painted pictures can afford.

Now I know how to get rich,
exactly what to do. 
Every week, if I want, I'll work a night or two.
Each day I'll sleep till noon.
At last the end of eating at the greasy spoon.

5 minutes undercover,
no more, 
and I discover
a painters secret of the trade.
To let the white mountains get a shade,
just apply some strokes of grey,
Smear on some brown, 
and voila, the ugly toad 
is the beginning of a winding road.
