Live like a poet

Live like a poet
And save the planet, because
They leave light footprints

On their surroundings,
Compared with corporations.
Their suicide rate

Is unfortunate
Since Death has proved career gold,
But don’t be put off.

Poets have no rules.
Suicide’s not essential.
You can write stuff first.

The problem with it
Is, it makes you feel more alive
If not immortal.
