Not Based On Anyone, Living Or Dead


If I write a love song, a brief little gem,
Some people will hear it and think I meant them.
If I spin a sonnet or whittle a rhyme,
Some idiot thinks he's my muse, half the time.
And that's why this phrase must remain in your head:
This is not based on anyone, living or dead.

Disclaimers are clumsy and not very smooth,
But lately I find they're a much-needed truth.
As much as you'd like to believe I meant you
When a poem pleads "I love you" or "Marry me, do,"
Please remember this phrase when you're sighing a-bed:
This is not based on anyone, living or dead.

Do I pine for a lover asleep in the grave?
No, that Muse don't matter -- he already gave.
Do I write of a person existing today?
Not a bit -- my creation was formed of mere clay.
So a note to the egos of Tom, Dick and Fred:
This is not based on anyone, living or dead.

There's a good deal of space between fiction and fact,
And I hate to be blunt -- I'd prefer to use tact --
But when you think that all of my works involve you,
It's about time we cleared up a problem or two.
I said what I meant and I meant what I said:
This is not based on anyone, living or dead.

:rofl:
Too true.

I might add:


If you write about my blog, my family, and where we go
Your life's sadly empty, and - you're feeding my ego.


By the way, thanks. :twisted:
