Who Is In Charge? - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

My muse continues to abuse
her position. She will refuse
to use her skills to help me out
That she’s in charge she has no doubt.
But I have bad news for my muse.
I have arranged some interviews
with other muses unemployed
Who say they would be overjoyed
to find themselves in with a chance
Which would improve their circumstance.
My muse is old and crotchety
she really thinks, she employs me.
I think it’s time that she retired
a thought which she herself inspired.

    Ivor, muses too must plan for redundancy! Pity the poet having to decide which muse to retire though - the sentence of angst would be extreme... Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
