What Shall I Write About Today
What shall I write about today?
So many inspirations
shall I write about the weather?
shall I write about myself?
You already know everything about me
shall I write abut politics?
Let’s see… how about love?
You know I’m just an old romantic poet
How about death… pain… illness??
too dreary… have already done that
shall I write about my wife?
I’ve already written several hundred poems about her
so… we’re talking about today
should I take a day off?
I’ll leave it up to you
what would you like me to write about today?
~The Tennessee Poet~
