A Poet's Life is the first solo album by Tim Armstrong (Rancid, Transplants, Operation Ivy), made in collaboration with Hellcat-signed reggae band The Aggrolites. It was released on May 22, 2007 (see 2007 in music) on Armstrong's own label, Hellcat Records.

This began as a thank you from Tim to Rancid fans, to be released one track at a time on the Internet to tide fans over until the next Rancid full-length. But when KROQ in LA began heavily playing the explosive track, "Into Action", plans changed. So here's Armstrong's first solo release, backed by some of the strongest radio support since the days of "Time Bomb" and "Ruby Soho". With a killer old-school two-tone groove, helped along by Hellcat label mates The Aggrolites, "A Poet's Life" is loose, punky, infectious, and shamelessly danceable. Bonus DVD features videos of every song and a cool featurette on the making of the album and videos.
