Blank on National Poetry Day...

What a day to lose my muse
It isn’t something I would choose
Lost for verse and lost for rhyme
It couldn’t have happened at a worse time

The poetry in me seems on strike
The poet off on his poet’s bike
I really wanted to partake
But the words won’t come for goodness sake

I’ve tried my best but my mind is blank
It’s about as much use as a wooden plank
If only my words would fly like birds
Instead they sink like a sperm whale’s turds

No poem on National Poetry Day
I really don’t know what to say
I wanted to write a little ditty
Maybe an elegy, perhaps something witty

I wondered loony as a cloud
Stop, plagiarism is not allowed
If only I could pen something original
Something that flows, that isn’t this drivel

Instead I find myself tongue tied
And it isn’t as if I haven’t tried
All you’ve got is this gibberish
Sorry for sharing my rhyming rubbish.
