Would Anybody Notice?
I can't change the world
I can't stop the fighting
Would anybody notice
If the poets all stopped writing
Would it make a difference
Would anybody care
If the writings on the wall
And no one else was there
I can't stop starvation
I can't cure discease
Would anybody notice
If all the poets were to leave
Would there still be love songs
Would tear drops cease to fall
Would the heartache be less painful
When your lover does'nt call
Would anybody notice
Do you think we would be missed
Could a love song be much sweeter
If the poet didn't exist.

 If all poets did not exist .......

 I know they would be missed ....

They have given us all the there heart and mind ...

Expressing it all in the language poetic rhyme...

 If poets lay down there there paper and pens ...

 Who then would replace where true poetry begins ....

 May we all come together with emotions of sensual bliss.....

 And never forget the willingness of a lovers first kiss.....

I will write as long as my heart is alive ......

and then leave behind my storys so they will survive ....

Then mankind as we know it never did exist.

For some how all the words woven together.

Provided us refuge beyond all the eight wonders 

of this world

I would be LOST without poets.  Poets help the world in many ways people don't think of.  If there were no poets, who'd wanna live here?  Great idea, great writing too!  --David
