  • Putterel

    His pen puttered
    across the page;
    scribbling drivel,
    not very sage,
    but words he churned
    at a good clip
    and his attention
    did not slip;
    though sometimes paused
    as thoughts were gathered
    aiming his meaning
    at something he rathered,
    continuing on as
    sufficient clarity
    imbued his pen
    with a humble charity
    to spread upon
    the sheet before him
    adding the lines
    with little decorum
    until finally,
    the pen's put down.
    But as he reads
    he forms a frown.
    ''Perhaps I should go
    take a nap,
    and afterwards this
    won't seem crap!''

    OMG (as the young people say). Sitting alone reading I laughed out loud (is that LOL or lol?).

    This verse is such a perfect and all to true picture. Very well written and presented.

      Thanks, rhymetime. It was how I felt after attempting to write something else (that didn't change after a nap.)

    And I sometimes feel this way about the putter also. The pen and the putter relegated to a stutter. I could keep stuttering but i'll spare you! Time to take a nap!

      Well, if I can putter around the garden, I can putter around in my doggerel. Thanks, BobbyDB.

    Very clever and enjoyable Muttado1sb! We have all suffered this indignity.

    I find the post-nap appraisal usually confirms inspiration is ashes.

      Frustrating when it happens. Thanks, AtL.
