Document - Poem by Rev. Dr. A. Jacob Hassler

sometimes writing is like pulling the
teeth of a thrashing shark whilst
his mouth is wrapped tightly around your leg

then other times the shark spits
his teeth at you
then calmly swims away

    Sometimes it comes easily, and sometimes it's a pain in the neck...like the shark's teeth, sometimes words are hard to get out. (Report) Reply
