I don’t know how to write a poem,
But I will try.
I am terribly inspired right now,
So help me rhyme.
What is the lure of poetry?
So different from a novel.
Much shorter obviously,
And much more apt.
What should I write about?
I need a topic in mind.
Or else it’ll turn out like this:
Meaningless and no one will give a dime.
I’m trying to write a fourth paragraph,
To end this silly venture.
I swear I’ll never write poetry again,
And subject you to such torture.
