No rhyme
	This time.

Re-thought
	Still naught.

Read books
	Got looks.

Brain nap
	A sap?

More rest
	Flunked test.

Online
	Not fine.

Didn’t learn
	Still yearn.

Free verse
	Got worse.

Poet?
	Forget.

Tried hard
	No bard!

to write something snappy
when life throws me lemons...

Our muse flows words, no hassles,
