For all my fellow writers in rhyme.
I sit at my laptop and think, how absurd.
Why can’t I remember that great rhyming word?
It came to me last night while lying in bed.
But now it has vanished right out of my head.
I scan my thesaurus to jump start my brain.
I pace and I ponder. I’m going insane.
From now on I’ll sleep with a notebook and pen.
In hopes you won’t ever elude me again.
