Out of Words


One, two, three-
365 days I can rhyme for free…
Two, three, four-
But readers can’t bear me anymore…
Three, four, five-
Still I need something to thrive…
Four, five, six-
The poet in me desperately needs a fix…
Five, six, seven-
They already treat him like a raven…
Six, seven, eight-
His words refused to be their bait…
Seven, eight, nine-
In selling your art everything is fine…
Eight, nine, ten-
Honestly he failed to catch the hen…
Now, if I stretch this beyond eleven
...
...
...
Surely I won’t ever be forgiven!
