A humor site that I visit daily has requested, if we like today’s poem, we should share it on our site; I do, so I am:


I Won’t Give a Damn

By Wayne E. Pollard (Inspired by Sara Teasdale’s I Shall Not Care)


When I am dead,

And the critics say how great I am,

Though they liken me to Fitzgerald,

Hemingway or Twain,

I won’t give a damn.


I will forgive them for their ignorance,

And for their souls, I will pray,

But I will care even less for their praise,

Than they care for my work today.
