Licence Revoked

I wasn't very careful driving my pen My poetic licence has been revoked I guess I didn't follow all the poetic rules So my licence has gone up in smoke Here I am now forced to travel Without my trusty pen in hand Left to walk on lonely beaches Writing my words in the sand Don't follow in my footsteps Let them all be washed away I sure miss that poetic licence I hope to get it back someday Once reunited with my trusty pen I will be careful to follow the rules Pens are not made for lesser men Sometimes they are used by fools Russell's Poetry about Poetry Contest

Sometimes the poems that come to me and vanish, feel like they have been written in the sand.

Two words and the rest followed. Poetic Licence. I had written the poem in my mind and didn't have time to write it down. I forgot what I was thinking and this is the best I could come up with. I think the original idea was better. Unfortunately poof it is gone.
