Vice-Versa #9 @ Poets United

It’s usual for folks to follow
It’s rare for them to lead
So someone who takes charge
Is a rare bird indeed

Most folks are quite happy
To just follow behind
Don’t know where they’re going
But don’t seem to mind

But I’m not like that
I go wherever I may
So please step aside
And I will lead the way


  1. Wouldnt we poets make a cool parade, all marching to different drummers? Would love to see that!

  2. Smiling... It's the only way to live life to its full, isn't it. Right with you too ;)

  3. OK then, off you go.
    we'll see where you lead us :-)

  5. Nice to see everybody is willing to let me lead the way - which also illustrates my point quite nicely!

    Me... Others
    ☺.... ☺☺☺☺☺☺...

  6. I love the rhythm and the message in this piece. It is very entertaining.

  7. You're so right... I'd love to be that rare bird.

  8. What a forceful person! As long as you don't lead me into temptation!

  9. Eric, a good leader is hard to find. I agree with you that most people would rather follow than lead. You have the confidence that would make YOU a good leader! Thanks for supporting/ participating in Vice/Versa!

  10. Mary is right. I'm more of a leader than a follower, perhaps because I have a big mouth (!) as well as strong convictions. But I remember the days of following... and being disappointed time and again. This poem spoke volumes to me. Thanks, Eric, and peace, Amy


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
