Damn Poetry (standard:poetry, 88 words)
Author: RozinanteAdded: Sep 15 2000Views/Reads: 3229/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A fun take on the frustrations of writing.

If only I could find the words, 

Those stinking, steaming oral turds, 

Grant me just alliteration, 

End my verbal constipation. 

Speak not of matters metaphoric, 

Tenses present and historic, 

Let alone a noble theme, 

To satisfy the rhyming scheme. 

Where is the sharp satirical, 

The sonnet sweet and lyrical? 

The footfalls of iambic feet, 

Tapping out a rhythmic beat. 

I find that I have lost the skill, 

To revel in the writerís thrill, 

Itís time that I put down the pen, 

You will not hear from me again.
