The Lyrics

When I seek my lady
Poetry implosion,
Poetry implosion.

Oh where does she hide
As I go through the motions?
Without her by my side:
Poetry implosion.

Was she sent away
By my keyboard commotion?
Oh, how I wish she’d stay—
To give some improvement
To verses I write, whose range:
A to B—not much movement.
What I write is so doggone strange:
Poetry implosion.

Static prose I see
That’s not flowing with motion,
Pacing gracelessly.

No! No!. . . .

Was she sent away
By keyboard smeared with lotion?
Oh, how I wish she’d stay—
To give some improvement
To verses I write, whose range:
A to B—not much movement
What I write’s doggerel with mange:
Poetry implosion.

Fall I to the floor
With mumble-cry emotion.
She’ll come around no more.

No! No!. . . .

JAB - Nice work! Is Calliope really your muse? I used to hang out with her son by Apollo! I understand Orpheus's last composition was "I Ain't Got Nobody". Well, a myth is as good as a mile. ;D
