Escaping Writer's Block

entry picture

Caught in the ruins

Looking for a

Way out

The scribe sits

In silence

Waiting for a muse

To remove


He prepares 

In meditation

Now he's between

Two worlds

Almost time 

For his


His thoughts 

Are in

A swirl

He knows

He can escape this

His setting out his


Crafting out 

His words

At such

An incredible


Finally he's free

Brought forth

His self expression

He's found a way

To be

Not held


From depression


◄ ConVERSEation

Lost Meanings ►

A rival to SS 'Poetry Puppets' Gosh! Can I rise to the challenge?

Little secret. They wanted me to script write for the Goons but I wasn't born. What's the expression? Born too late.

Another secret (cat not out of the bag but soon to be tipped out on screen - meow. I was unsuccessful with my audition for Monty Python. Couldn't do silly walks - medical reason - some bugger Clease got the job. Them's the breaks)

Rebel 'L' sounds a bit feisty. Is she talking about sex? If so, not a good role model for her classmates. She'll also have to wait Johnny and Kenny's turn. Oh? - she's meaning bring on the show?

I gotta do some gardening....

With a little Rebel 'L' they cried more, more, more! Don every time I try to spell your name it show's up as Don't unless I take extra care to spot it. But anyway, the good news is we're gonna set up a new show to rival SS 'Poetry Puppets' you can write the scripts or make the puppets your choice ?
