Compose in rhyme or in prose

Words on paper, thoughts exposed

Check the grammar and typos

Begin to write; see how it goes

Outline theme and subject matter

Will it offend; or will it flatter

Tears of grief or joys of laughter

Keep it short or lots of chatter

Bad marriage or a love affair

Plenty wealth or poor welfare

Sweet dreams or a bad nightmare

There's inspiration everywhere!

Many snippets I have penned

Words I cannot comprehend

So much time left to expend

On how to make a poem end
