Welcome to My Poetry Site
How did I do? I don't know,
Did my best, but could I do more?
Did I wear the right tie?
Did my shoes please your eye?
I can't rest 'til I get your reply.
I might sell a teapot on eBay,
A fuss must be made straight away,
What a wonderful chap, here's my lovely feedback,
I'll be back to buy more
On pay day.
I've a duty to please all my peers,
I'm mumbling and bumbling with fear,
Did I bomb at the bell, or did I do well?
Please tell me,
I'm waiting to hear.
I can't make a move without feedback,
It's the food and drink of my life,
I must know for sure that you liked my rapport,
Please guide me,
Or I won't survive.
I can't do a thing without feedback,
I must have approval forthwith,
To get through the day,
I must hear straight away,
Of my brilliantly talented gift.
It’s a cognitive quirk in my psyche,
I've had it confirmed at the quacks,
I've been to my shrink,
But he can't do a thing,
'Til he's read his feedback and relaxed.
