I'm not Plagiarizing Your Ideas

I’m not Plagiarizing Your Ideas

Clark Steven Lupton

December 2, 2007

We may have the same topics

And even the same verse

Your poems may be original

And my versions may seem worse

It looks like I copied you

But I really did not

I thought of them myself

From my own brain I got

We got the same ideas differently

We took a different course

We might have phrased them differently

But got them from the same idea source

You may have written the idea first

The same one I intended

But to imply I stole yours

Really makes me offended

I write my own ideas!

I may sound like a drone

I can’t emphasize this enough:

My ideas are my own!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I stole this idea from someone else.
