I watched the Poet Laureate on T.V. the other night

And The Old Poet Said

It was getting harder to peel away the deeper layers of his soul
That he had to ADMIT to much shit.

And that IS it
Because it's tough to say
What you HAVE to say
When the masking layers are stripped away
And the leering inner-demons have their way
With your writing and your life.
