Oh, to blog,

Let slip the fetters of un-questions

That must remain un-answered


To dabble in the realm of prophets

Poetically pontificate, and thus

Know it is folly to do such


To test the DNA of the N/A

write again another day

of love and lust and trampled hay


Oh, to blog

To hold the laser pointer

Drive the cat insane


to be at one

With words and pen

To tempt the muse…..and then
