Poem: Once Upon a Winter's Day

Oh, I want to be writing,
but the sky is so gray
and the minutes are drifting
so quickly away,
and the minutes are drifting
and my keyboard is still,
I ought to be writing
I've got villains to kill,
and heroes to lead
to their true loves by night -
I need to be writing -
This just isn't right.

O saints of the story,
O kami of tales
O great gods of plotting,
stop spinning on nails -
let there be blood and gore,
let the dark magic loose
let them find the old troll
and the lost magic goose,
let love win the day,
(but don't let it be tripe),
get to work, lazy fingers,
hit the keyboard and type!
