One Tenth of Ted

Make no mistake
I am no Ted Hughes
just because
I come from Yorkshire;
I have one tenth his talent
and with my face it is safe
not to lock up
anyone’s’ daughter.

I do not possess one tenth of Ted Hughes’ talent it is much, much less than that but “tenth” rhymes better. I hope you will forgive me for assuming such a lofty percentage.
