This is a poem about nothing,
couldn't find a subject to write,
so if you are a time-waster
then continue from left to right.

It's easy to write a poem about something,
you merely convey your impression,
but elaborating on nothing
it's hard to give next to expression.

On scribing a poem of this type
I'm sure I could never do worse
for here you have a rhyme without reason
which might well be entitled "Blank Verse".

Your little 'blank-do-nothing-verse'
filled the page with the worse
thoughts to my mind
of another time
when I had
nothing
except
time
and
me

~Nice~

This ain't a rhyme without reason
The reason is simply the rhyme
But the rhyme don't tell us nothin'
Except that you know to keep time

But I can't say it ain't worth readin'
Though the subject is nothin' to note
There ain't no such thing as a poem about nothin'
'Cause nothin' is somethin' you wrote!

So it's really a poem about somethin'
And that somethin' is nothin' at all
So let's call it a poem about somethin'
Or nothin' will come of it all

Even when I have something to say, the words often escape me... so I envy those of you who can write through writer's block! *G* Well done!
