An ode to the artist!

mark on thekeybunch.com
As artists you are passionate about your work

You presume everyone knows you, knows your work

But, the truth is, us non-arty kinds don’t!
We may see it, appreciate it and forget it…
That’s life, hun!
So, this is just a friendly reminder to you dear artist,
Your work is special, it should be
You have labored and put yourself into it
It sure hurts when someone else claims it as her own
It ain’t right! It’s not acceptable! It’s wrong! Condemn it!
But if someone simply doesn’t know it’s your style, your inspiration,
your sweat and blood
There are nicer ways to tell them, to remind them, or just ask them to change a line,
Than label them with the first expletive off your head.
