Oh blinking cursor, how you taunt me

Begging for a poem, essay or short story

Your constant demands for words to devour

A simile or metaphor involving a flower

 

Your rhythmic flash; a mocking tone

And now my work I must postpone

To satisfy your creative cravings

Your desire for my digital pencil shavings

 

Back foul beast, accept your defeat

On the battlefield of MS Word we shall meet

A thrust and riposte; cursor vs. hand

With spell check I make my final stand

 

My grammar and spelling seal your fate

The formatting perfect; it is too late

My poem is finished, your blinking subsides

Saved to the server, in memory it resides
