The crazy voices in my head
Are haiku, sonnet, and nonet
They're driving me insane!
They demand to be written now
As sure as hell, I don’t know how
They're being such a pain!
They just laugh while tormenting me
From their prison I must break free
They make me feel so blue!
“Some poetess you claim you are
Without us, dear, you shan't go far
Believe us, this is true!"
I have no way to comprehend
How these voices to me are send
To make me take a fall!
My dilemma I give to you
Oh please tell me, what can I do?
Help me….voices and all!
