Catch My Drift



Strange how it goes, they're waiting their turn To flood my thoughts, these ideas to burn Other times nothing, just rack my old brain Get all pooped out, my attempts are in vain Is there no place smack dab in the middle Where rhymes reside and efforts are little Why do we suffer a blankness at times There must be a pill for starting these rhymes Oh well, I'm really having the time of my life Annoying struggles just add to the spice We'd ALL be poets if these rhymes came easy Wouldn't stand out with our words so breezy Do you catch my drift, am I making any sense Keep plugging away, don't be so damn tense Rhymes will soon come, have ye no doubt Flooding your brain, you'll stand up and shout Lordy, I'm a poet just knew it all along My heart doth sing a happiness thong! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Sorry that my reply to your poem was so light hearted. I didn't realize it could have been a personal pain you were feeling when you wrote it. I'm terribly sorry my dear Eileen! Please forgive! Love and big hugs, Jack xoxox

    Clever, witty, funny and insightful. And most importantly a great read. One to savour as indeed we have all had that struggle, but you have captured the struggle and raised above it with flair and panache.

    I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed, Jack. I honestly thought I was going to read a poem about farts (catch my DRIFT?)... LOL! Whether rhymes are included or not, I just appreciate a good story... keep it up, my friend!

    My ideas are stuck around rain and rubber duckies.... Help me Obi Wan Cathie... My dragon is thinking about visiting Godzilla... and the Trolls want to take the duckies to the Center of the Earth to exchange for a pet called Lolly... Decisions... Decisions... ARGHHH! I'd say I was losing my mind... But everyone says it's already gone... LOL

    Ha ha, oh Jack, your last line tickled me so much, "My heart doth sing a happiness THONG!" HA HA, that is just too funny! You are a glorious poet my friend, and your rhymes come easily I'm sure. It doesn't take too much effort for your rhymes to come I'm sure! But unlike you, I sometimes must work at getting my rhymes to work, and to fit my poem accurately! You have written a delightful poem! Thank you for lightening the mood, what an amazing piece, Great Work!!
