A Brain Freezer



Two days have gone by and no new poems What's happening to this silly old geezer Am I having one of those damn writer's blocks Those famous deadly brain freezers Surely there's a bunch more stuff inside It just isn't making itself known Usually I'm a very patient old son of a gun Hope this old mind hasn't blown All those poems I had stored up for months Getting near the end of the pile Kinda frightened like a little kid, I am My reputation's gonna be defiled Think I'll lie down for a couple of days To let my old bean-o recharge Then I'll be back to my prolific old self Sure feel like an absolute retard They say it can happen to the best of us guys Thought I was above all that stuff So much for that “holier that thou” attitude You guy's have seen through my bluff © Jack Ellison 2013

    My dear friend you will have to slow down, just for us to catch up. Two days are nothing. You have spread so much joy and knowledge, and I only know of a small percentage of it. I can only say when I was truly slowing down and cared about writing more, I would randomly enter a contest lol. Somehow if I could write about the topic at hand, I could write about anything, but what do I know. Ultimately they weren't that random, I usually tried to fill friends contests.

    Ah HAH! I was right... You DO have a stock pile of poems... Probably ones you've been writing for years! I knew immediately when you switched to all love poems... I win the bet Dragon! You lose!... HUH! Why did I say that to a Dragon?... Some times I wonder about myself... Running... We seen to have a lot of that lately... while trying to keep Dragon off the naughty list... All the Trolls have joined me in taking turns running... to wear poor Dragon out... Winning!... Ouch! Flames ahoy!... LOL

    Yeah my friend, it happens even to the greatest of writers...that writers block can be a real pain! But don't you worry, don't you fret, you'll get your groove back, with the greatest heart yet! I really loved reading this awesome poem this morning! What a glorious piece, such a fantastic verse, Great Work!!
