Drink Poetry Contest Entry

Purchased Talent (a sonnet)

by DragonSkulls

The gypsy offered answers for my gold.
She'd craft a potion hauntingly unique.
I long to write the poetry of old,
reflected in each precious word I speak.

I took a sip and felt the verse within.
So eloquently rhyming came with ease.
Might not you view this bartered gift as sin
for clearly it was purchased to appease.

I wish to share my work with queens and lords,
where skills I gained are quilled in vibrant ink.
But sadly talent bought holds scant rewards,
for my first write's about a stupid drink.

I question if the sack of coin in trade
was worth the dark decision that I made.
