Casarah wants us to write happy That’s not an easy job My fickle muse has left me She’s turned into quite a snob She won’t let me write a poem that’s funny Not even a short limerick Now my world is dark not sunny I’m feeling a little bit sick So I’ve locked her in a cupboard She’s wailing and creating a fuss Her plans to gag me are scuppered I’ve just GOT to write humourous My capricious muse is locked away I can hear her starting to cry I’ll let her out one day That doesn’t end with a Y! Contest One hundred and one words - CHECKED WITH WORD COUNTER Sponsor Casarah Nance 31st August 2015

Poor, poor muse, you have to change language to find a day that ends not in "Y" otherwise, Jan, will keep you under lock and key. Please, change to Greek so I will have you visiting me. Jan, you have succeeded in writing the one-hundred-and-one contest in a very humorous way. Bravo! Good luck!

Hi Jan, this made me chuckle. You are my favourite poet of humour ,entertainment and fun, so you'd better get your muse working overtime : ). Had some health issues dear, but thanks God Im doing great now and trying to catch up with all you folks. Lovely poem.
