From dark to light.

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.
