Contests and competitions
of prize money
Publishing becomes serious
With a blog there is a reach
little over that it becomes a breach
getting verses in print
looks like a great stint
yet poets want to go across
irrespective of the toss
which might bring a repute
though there is a dispute
that fiction receives a welcome
poems bring no income
poetry still remains for a few
lighting up those who love it true
the publishing takes different forms
that of self and recognised norms
while the queue to get published is long
opting for self publishing becomes strong
with the money to invest possible
nothing goes on in this world as impossible.
Pockets of potholes seen on the road
Pockets of dirt found in the corners.
Pockets of land looking not flat.
Pockets that are visible
Pockets that lay camouflaged
Pockets big stitched in dresses .
Pockets small adorning the kids wear
So being pockets all in the fray
there arises a bump on the way
an accumulation in the sway
