Suffering literary anxiety occurs mostly on the Sabbath day
Does it come from that little voice at the back of the head
Whispering, on the Sabbath day rest and pray
Rest is something to do once the light is switched out
Pray – once was in fashion
Now confined to when
Literary anxiety raises its ugly head
If you do not rest you will suffer burnout
Put prayer on the back burner –
If there is a hell you’ll burn
Should poetic lines always be fluid
In order that a white space not be left nude.
Pondering on topics which need not be pondered on,
At least not for long periods
May well lead to nervous exhaustion.
