Excuses, Excuses... Poem by Michael Shepherd

Excuses, Excuses...

Rating: 1.9


It's a situation
all too familiar:
sitting at this keyboard
getting sillier and sillier,
descending from Olympus
to a hell of trivia,
fingers wildly itching
for some inspiration,
tapping out some pointless words
in conceited desperation

so I hope you'll weakly smile
and charitably say
'oh it's just a poet who won't shut up
having a bad day'...

I wrote my limericks tonight as a medical antidote. Thanks for visiting. We need to have a limerick contest, you and I. The winner gets to throw wombat droppings to get square and even. H
