I wrote this ten years ago, but I think it's still very relevant. It's a bit rusty but it makes me smile!

Where's my Poetic Licence

 

My thoughts are in verse with
iambic pentameter
I am speaking in sonnets with
an odd rhyming couplet
 
  Waking at night
    I scrabble to
scribble my dreams
forgotten by morning
 
I am the classic ear-wigger
         The shy drabble maker
The one who jots thoughts
  In my busy new notebook

Bought
  ‘specially
    for
     writing
 
When will I be a writer
Where’s the line I must cross
 
How many classes
how many courses
How many readings
how many stories
 
Until I can finally say
I write
 I am a writer!
