My One Small Delight - Poem by David Whalen

Why do I feel
that it must be just right
This poem that I struggle
with this very night

Why do I even feel this
compulsive urge To write
And why does my skill
Feel ever so slight

Why am I compelled
To try to get it just right
With A lyrical bent,
and a satirical bite

Damned if I know
I cannot see the light
But one thing I know is…
It’s my one small delight
