I Can’t Write a Poem

Forget it!
I don’t have my writing notebook
I don’t now how
I can’t come up with anything
My hand hurts
My dog ate my paper
I don’t know the alphabet
I can’t think of any writing words
My water bottle spilled on my paper
I think poetry is weird
My baby sister tore my paper in half
My doctor says I can’t use my right hand or my left
and …………
Time’s up? Uh Oh!
All I have is this dumb list of excuses.
You like it? Really?
Thanks a lot! Would you like to see another one?
