For Lack Of A Muse

If I had no enemies
I could not dream sweet dreams of sweet revenge
Nor contemplate the lesser prize of retribution.
If I had no enemies
I could not laze about in the noonday sun 
Awaiting the intervention of Divine Justice.

Most likely, I would be strung out in limbo
Alongside foregiveness and its eerie companion, love.
Then what?

I would have to blow this two-by-four cell 
And search for a new source of Inspiration.

What a drag.

    Do you recieve inspiration from people you are angry with? I find this a differernt take on creativity than I have ever seen. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    I think that inspiration can come from almost anyone. It all depends on your interpretation.

    'two-by-four cell'? Sounds like a prison, one which most of us are in minus the bars. And you're right, finding a new source of inspiration requires hard work at times. Nice poem Beverly!
