It's not my choice at all
I'm following the rhymes
Wherever they might go
While some may lead to laughter
Others end in woe

It’s not my choice at all
You may think it strange
It isn’t up to me at all
Maybe I’m deranged

But once I start to write
It just takes over me
I never know what will come next
I have to wait and see

So if you like my poems
As some of you may do
I cannot take the praise for them
Although I would like to

And if you think they’re bad
I won’t blame you a bit
I’m not so fond of them myself
Well, maybe just a whit

I know I am surprised
When I see what I’ve done
But I can tell you this, my friend
I’m having lots of fun

So if they’re good or bad
It doesn’t matter much
As long as I can sit and write
It keeps me out of Dutch

(Really, don't blame me for that last rhyme.)
