Oh to Write a Triolet

I cannot write a Triolet
I tried but I haven’t finished it yet
A Flach Sandwich doesn’t seem so hard
Then why have I barely written a word
Thoughts are running to and fro
I wonder where they seem to go
I have dozens of things to write about
Why can’t I seem to get them out
Starting and stopping I do a lot
Do I have anything yet or maybe not
If it is not as hard as it seems
Then why am I not putting out reams and reams
I cannot write a Triolet

    Hmmm, maybe i have NOT seen all your poetry yet. I certainly missed this clever little piece!! This is quite funny. You ended up with something every bit as good as a triolet. LUv, Andrea
