We call ourselves Jack-of-all-trades,
While poker hands come up all spades.
This writing job we encounter jerks,
And rarely enjoy a rich man’s perks.
Journalism is our skill of trade
Unfortunately never well paid
Taking words and juxtapose
Into rhyming jargonizing prose.
Some of us are known as a Jesus freak
Till we learn how to teach while being meek
Journeying through this annual dare
Justifying to ourselves why people stare
John Barleycorn was an interesting fellow
In Maine some people speak in joual.
I’ve jabbered on quite long enough,
Joie de Vivre and always stay tough.
