Opening the Mic is quite fine,
Dearest poet deVine,
But youíve done nothing but say
Come here and write away
At eight and donít be late.

What poem shall we write,
Tonight;
What words to pen,
Then;
What masterpieces shall our writing do
And to who?

I just want to get this right,
Itís got to be more than just where or when,
And how will we know when weíre through?

Will the assembled poets just wander away
When they lack something else to say?

And of this poetical storm,
You mention nothing of style or form.

Please, oh please, tell us more
DeVine I do implore

Gloom

There can be no theme
to this evil scheme
otherwise off the cuff
won't be enough

perhaps a challenge phrase
will be all we can raise
but there will be no
other rule you know

form? any one, it's up to you
write any form you usually do
this poem is written on the run
that's the only requirement to tonight's fun!

Fun?
How can I pen with eyes so weary
In words wrote that become then blurry,
Shall I write through night in mental twilight?

How can I scribe out passages of word
When the dull scraping of all that unspoken heard,
Silent sound rebounds within muddled crown.

How do you plan, what do you intend,
To take from each poet a mental blend,
Calling each one some fun yet never to be done?

How can I just throw in my poetic lot
Never then to know what musings it has brought,
It is fun words begun not to know how the ends spun?

Gloom
