(Tongue in cheek)


Maybe it’s a compliment,

you duplicate words I use.

Should I be happy that,

it was my lines you choose,

to replicate and mirror

and claim them for your own,

maybe it’s an accident that it

came out, like my poem?


I wonder were my words profound

and they made a mark on you?

I’m sure you’d never copy

the ramblings that I do.



Don’t get me wrong,

I’m flattered, that I inspired you,

to write a little ditty

the same way that I do,

but please try to be mindful,

and recognise the sight,

that I sign up to copyscape

to protect my copyright.
