Corn

Earning one’s corn.


There are no rich people
in this humble abode,
only a would-be poet
composing an ode.
 
He knows very well
that poetry doesn’t pay
but he is obstinate
and won’t change his way.
 
It cannot be denied
that he is poor
and can’t keep the wolf
away from the door.
 
He often thinks
that to earn his corn
he may have to switch
and start to write porn.
