Some Writer Types

Writers
Put words onto pages
or onto screens
in this digital age you know what that means

Wordsmiths
remove thoughts from the ether
and bring them to earth
where we cast them about
debating their worth

Some famous scribes
have been known to imbibe
but it’s not necessary
to drink when spreading ink

Lyricists
can write songs by the score
while their heart’s on the floor
amidst the notes that they wrote

Poets
eschew convention
with their own invention
which becomes… convention

Dramatists
know all the world’s a stage
and seek to engage
those in the seats
patrons they may never meet
