I can’t think of a theme I confess and doubting I’ll please John Lawless I’m ahhing and umming and no words are coming my shattered nerves are such a mess! I’m tasked to write oodles of words (I won’t mention boobies or turds) Each word I am counting my tension is mounting John’s turning us into word nerds I’m twiddling my pen in the night my fickle muse has taken flight She’s enjoying a cruise drinking lots of booze Oh bother, I’m in such a plight I wonder if I can conform I’m having an awful brainstorm If my word count is short contest dreams I’ll abort my endeavours I’ll treat with scorn I’ve finally found inspiration my forehead’s drenched in perspiration Now this work’s complete Poets rise to your feet I deserve a standing ovation! Word Count 136 as per Microsoft word One Hundred and Thirty Six Words Poetry Contest Poetry Contest Sponsored by John Lawless 9/2/19
