No Day For Heroes

I give up.
I guess this day’s
Not a day for poetry.
No ballad poetry today.
I don’t know where the time
has gone but, all of the sudden,
the sun is goin’ down and
I haven’t been able to write
word one till now…

I give up.
A 10 year old boy screams
for my attention and I lose
my train of thought and in-
spiration has bought the
farm and, for a moment,
there was still a chance for me
till now…

I give up.
