The Man Has You Grinding Away

The man has you grinding away
The organ makes the monkey dance
You’re looking for the Promised Land
But you never really had the chance
You’re writing your soul on the page
Friends support & love all they heard
But the critics cry foul & laugh bitterly
You’re only as good as your last word

  1. Okay, I know I should be commenting on the content of the poem itself (I love it by the way) but I have to point something out…

    “You’re writing your soul on the page”

    Thank god there are people such as yourself who know when to use “you’re” and “your”. It’s just a personal bugbear of mine so I thank you thank you THANK YOU! 😛
