A bit of silliness - enjoy!

The eternal struggle continues
To write the perfect poem -
My Thesaurus has blown a fuse 
I've gone through ten thousand pens -

My Muse lies there, gasping, on the floor
As I burn the midnight oil -
There are new words that must be explored
And so through the dark, I toil -

The trashcan's overflowing with rhyme
And less than perfect meter -
I promise that I'll get it NEXT time
And drink tea by the liter -

The eternal struggle continues
To write the perfect poem -
I shan't sleep again, nor will my Muse
'Long as there's poems to pen -

(c) 2005, by Karla Dorman.

Pens? Dollar Store; 100 for a buck 99 (smile)!
What gets me is that I never can find a pen at that right moment whenever I'm away from home. So anything that can be scribbled on becomes the victim of my muse (but not the walls of city hall-oh what I could write on those hypocritical bricks!)
