The Blind Poet

The boy claims he can’t write!
He’s been trying hard for years!
He’s spent his days
Working and reading
But still can’t bring forth ideas.

Beckett, Pinter and Shakespeare
Aren’t coaching this child to express!
And Tolkein, Banks,
Bronte, Joyce
Too have had no success.

“How am I out of inspiration?” He asks.
How do I write about life?”

“How do you write about life, my boy,
When you only read and write?”
