Ghost Writer

I am the one that edits the books
that other people read and admire
the writer with their name in golden
letters and their fame for such
clever and faultless style

I am the one in the background
not any  applause- not a sound
for I must feed my family and
edit other's grandiose tales
while through my efforts
they become renoun

Erasing like mad - the could of
and should of's and changing the
ofs into haves and stamping out
irregardlesses and other such
english mistaken grammar

So with my precious pen, I sit
and slash their, there, its, it's,
effects, and affects, than, then
once in awhile I stop with
my slashes, notes and dashes
and
dream of a time, when the
children are  grown, and money
will not be such a disaster
then finally in my moment of glory
when at last I shall write a best
seller  my name  stamped
with pride in glorious imprinted letters
" Ghost Writer" as any other
name by  then  would be a misnomer

Thanks Tracie -- I am glad you enjoyed.
And, yes, I will be putting in more poetry.

This is a great place, ain't it?

Warm Regards,
