Not Poetically Astute


Sitting here without a theme to write about
For me, a problem particularly acute
This enigma I'm particularly uptight about
Convinced I'm not poetically astute

Not poetically astute is what I'm thinking
It's a downer, enthralling not for me
With this downer, I'll end up bar-room drinking
With my poems all written fuzzily

Inebriation's not this poet's rhyme enhancer
Since rhymes flow only when I'm sober
Soberly I hope to find my rhyming answer
Hopefully now, before I'm any older

It's good that you can laugh at your ideas block! I have found the same thing since my last stroke, ideas are few and far between, I thought that the style really suited the subject matter. I had a giggle at this.

It's never amusing to lack a muse is it? I think you managed just fine! :-)

How sweet Stan!
Most people drink as an excuse to write, I like your being more creative when not in a state of inebriation..((Hugs)))
Love,

we all need a wake up
call, sometimes it
is not always what
we are looking for.

My advice in these circumstances Stan, is put on some music you like to dance to...pick up the beat and give your poems a punctuation treat!lol That should do it.

Currently reading, 'Eats Shoots and Leaves' in the hope of curing my punctuation dis ease.

Smiling at you
