Stating The Obvious

Though everyone needed in the wordsmith trade
It is true about poets they are born not made
And though the great poets of literary history long with the dead lay
Their poems are read and recited today

Worldwide in every country in the big world out there
By lovers of poetry who do reside most everywhere
By male and by female the old and the young
Of different races and in every tongue

Though in literary works few literary critics do seldom agree
Poetry nowadays not as popular as it used to be
With the emergence of the internet the Human World is changing fast
And literature's glory days now seems in the past

Though it is stating the obvious of which most are aware
It is a truism that great poets are rare
And though most writers from memory quickly do fade
Everybody is needed in the wordsmith trade.
