I’m feeling rather tired tonight
I have no energy to write
As my energy levels continue to diminish
I’ve started so I must finish.
Have you ever felt like just walking away?
Even though you had some serious things to say
Maybe a cup of coffee might just do the trick
Something will have to happen or this poem will sink like the proverbial brick.
There is always an angle to get you out of a hole
Pretty soon you’ll find that you are on a roll
Re-energised and ready to complete this writing task
I’ve done it. How? Please don’t even ask.

I got a call earlier today from my friend Fictitious Clancy – he was in a real panic
He was looking for the name of a really good mechanic
He was out for a drive with a pretty blonde – actually it was someone’s wife
But I really can’t tell you that or he would have my life
They had just gone on a short trip for a little tete – a – tete
It was meant to be quite innocent – not a proper date
Then the car blew up on them – now that episode wasn’t planned
The whole thing began to unravel and get out of hand
So being the obliging chap I am I gave him the number he requested
It was then things really went belly up and his patience was about to be tested
For as luck would have it – when the mechanic arrived to carry out the car repair
The blonde in the company of Fictitious Clancy was none other than his wife Claire.
