~The Poet’s Poet~

Write a poem, short and witty

Can’t?

What a pity

This artefact an extension of self

On a morning such as this

Should never have been removed

From its resting place

Alone with his thoughts

To labour and gain no reward’

Simply not on today

The space between his ears

Devoid of thought

Inimical to the writerly values

Relationship of man and pen

Not worth considering

Write a poem, short and witty

The attitude is just not there.
