The Poet

The Poet is a writer, first, an actor on the spot;
They tweak and twirl and twiddle, ’till they run you cold and hot.

Bending use of adjective, worrying of plot;
Crafting out a simile with hyperbolic fraught.

Pacing over synonyms, antonyms if jammed,
Repurposing of idioms, with word or two in hand.
