He Used To Be A Shearer

He used to be a shearer when in his life's prime
And  nowadays he's a scribbler of  uneven rhyme
Yet his rhymes are quite musical and enjoyable to read
Of many more of his kind the literary World is  in need
His kind the literary critics dismiss as a non poet
In their opinions rhymers are unworthy of literary note
But in the local pub on a saturday night
His poetry reading hour is always a highlight
He is one the pub patrons  never under-rate
To them their poetic hero is a literary great
In his early seventies time is becoming his foe
He was shearing sheep up to six years ago
A poetic hero in his side of the town
He is enjoying his status of local literary renown.
