I must try and write something today
Even though I have nothing to say
Not what could be called an easy task?
Why is that, did I hear you ask?
Well you see since I wrote my last poem
I shut down in order to have time alone
I don’t know about you but this helps me focus
Some I know would say that’s a lot of hocus pocus
But I find it works for me after I have rested
I doubt it’s a scientific fact, but I’m willing to be tested
But for any scientist out there I have this one thing to say
I’ll not undergo any test that does not include the words we pay
Now I hear this rumble from the world outside –
You started out with nothing to say – was that just an aside
Something maybe to put us off the scent so to speak
We were hoping you were gone for a whole week
Well I’m sorry to disappoint, sadly this is not the case
I’m back ensconced behind my desk, glad to be back at base
So there you go that’s said and done
Another story nearly spun
Finished now, that’s it, the end.
