by Samuel De Lemos


I’m not all that, I read
I study, I work hard at
what I do.

At the end of the day, I
have to sweep the floors-
clean the dishes and help
around the home.

Hardly a day goes by that
I don’t pick up for someone.
What would you expect from a
houseful of nine?

It’s in the off hours that
I write poems or think about
my philosophy friends.

Other than that-I’m busier
than a bee, trying to make a
living and supporting
my beautiful family.
