Poems Happen

Written by: Jack Ellison

Poems happen all day long All you need do is observe No need to rack your li'l old brain Soon have a bunch in reserve Your brain will be on overload Fingers will pound the keys Illusive thoughts will pop right in You'll probably need to pee Won't believe how easy they'll come Poems will literally flow Body will start to shimmy and shake Tremble right down to your toes But one thing please be careful of Take a break every now and then Or your overtaxed brain'll get all mushy And drive you round the bend Just a bit of friendly advice How I see it for what it's worth Everything in moderation, my friends Your life will be filled with mirth © Jack Ellison 2012
