A chapter in the book Let's Laugh 5

His Spirit is My Muse

by Barb Hensongispsaca

My muse was finally on the run,
his lazy streak was almost done.
I stuck a fire where he would sit
then watched as he threw one huge fit.

When he calmed down, I said, "Now, look...
we have to come up with a book.
I've five new poems we must rhyme
and do it in allotted time."

My muse was not the least impressed,
and kind of looked a bit distressed.
He ranted and he raved a bit,
but never threw another fit.

Because he really loves to write,
upon this challenge, he would bite.
I told him what I planned to do.
There was a sequence I'd work through.

I grabbed his int'rest ... he was keyed.
Ideas flow for you to read.
So now he has his game face on,
it's one, and two, and three ... he's gone.
