Poem created in response to Robert Lee Brewer’s 2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 12, 12 Apr 2011.
(an exercise in poetic forms)
interferes with play
make it to
the gym today. Work,
as it is wont to do, has reared
its ugly head and smote the morn
which is when I like
to work out.
Fingers tap on the keys all day
I vainly try to make headway
listening to the bosses bray
All work, no play. All work, no play!
Fast and good, a double-edged sword
beating my head ‘gainst the keyboard.
Mission essential –Oh, good lord!
It’s my reward. It’s my reward??
