If you ask what inspired me to write this poem
my civil response is to send you hoem.
If you ask me how I wrote this werk
I’d answer you with this rational perk:
If I waited to be inspired and fonkey
I’d write with the skill of a typewriter monkey.
I sit down to write every day at these times
because if I don’t there won’t be any rimes.
Writing’s a craft just like any werk:
‘Til you turn on the heat, your coffee won’t perk.
