Below is a song from the epic 1971 album “There’s a Riot Going On” by Sly and the Family Stone. Sly Stone is a genius and one of my heroes.


The song is titled “Poet”. It is my mantra and my theme song.

You can listen to it here: Poet.mp3

Lyrics to “Poet”:

My only weapon is my pen
and the frame of mind I’m in
I’m a songwriter
A poet
I’m a songwriter
A poet
And the things I flash on everyday
they all reflect in what I say
I’m a songwriter
I’m a poet
I’m a songwriter
Oh yeah, a poet
