"I can't write poetry"

"I can't write poetry-
  why do I try?
I could just as well
  grow wings and fly!"

We all say that
  when we're feeling blue,
It's just one down day-
  or have you the flu?

If you stay awake
  to the day's stark facts,
Poetry won't come
  'cause imagination lacks.

So forget tomorrow is Monday
  (homework can wait)
Capture that magic moment-
  before it is too late!
