How do you become a real poet?

How do you get paid to write rhymes ?

Do I quote intellectual-

Would that be effectual?

Or am I behind with the times.

An agent? A slam night?

Try open mic sessions…

I’m serious 

but there’s no exams like professions …

Pay hundreds to study?

Or will this just muddy

My words, so that I just go wrong. 

I’d love to succeed:

I’d love you to read

My poems all printed out pat.

But frankly it’s daunting…

Promo without flaunting 

Tell me, how do I do that?!
