But, I Wanted To Sing –

Rating: 4.9
Sparrows in my mind
Scratching for ort
Stirring a host
Crowding in my bowels
Have the fireflies flown?
From a grumbling cavern
They fly up to
My uptight gullet
Pushing up bile
Tamped down
By peristalsis

Aach, what a sting!
But, I wanted to sing

This poem has a touch of irony but I like irony sometimes. Wanting to do one thing that turns into another can be disappointing but poetically, you handled it well.
