Making something from nothing, somehow!

This is a collaboration between Hullabaloo22 and myself:

I thought my cupboard of ideas was loaded for bear,

but when I looked inside, there was nothing there.


Just an empty sea of nothing mocked me and greeted my eyes.

"Let's see you make something out of that!" taunted The Nothing Guys.


And so with nothing I set sail for something, anything,

that will pass for an original idea, a thought, and bring


a sense of accomplishment to this desperate soul,

but my idea stocking contained nothing but a lump of coal!


No, those ideas have gone off on some unscheduled trip,

leaving me with nothing, not even one small drip.


A lack of inspiration seems to pull me down to nought,

a nothingness of thoughts and a real creative drought.


But then when it comes to giving up, that I’ll never do,

for there’ll always be some little spark that pops up into view.


I’ll go off on a shopping spree and gather up some stores

then when those ideas are in place I’ll close those cupboard doors.
