The Power Is Out

The power is out
but rather than pout
I'll sit down and write a few rhymes

It makes me so happy
to write something snappy
when life throws me lemons or limes

My eccentricity
denied electricity
comes out in the open to play

Without hesitation
my imagination
shall leave quite a mark on this day

When out of the norm
one still must perform
to keep the mind sharpened and clear

For when you stay focused
you'll keep back the locust
from turning your peace into fear

The lights are back on
and the silence is gone
the hum of my fridge is so nice

Out of rhymes I have run
so my poem is done
and it came at a cheap enough price
