The Sick Writer~#poetry #sick #themagicshop


Three days sick without writing a word! Hope this makes up for some lost time ..


A writer’s dilemma that alway proves frightening

Are those annoying, brief obstacles that will stop them from writing

It often can be from the lack of ideas in their heads

Those damn vacated spaces that are creatively dead

Sometimes its life’s burdens that eat up all of their time

Leaving no room to make poetry with the occasional rhyme

Perhaps its a sadness that’s muting their inner muse

Sapping out energy in trying to express such wonderous views

For me, a different reason forced me to take these past few days off

A series of ailments that included a cough

Sleepless at night with a hack born in Hell

Trying to Blog with bronchitis was just not going well

With meds in my body, I took a dare that I thought would be fulfilling

I set out to make a rhyme with the word amoxicillin

With this short piece, I’ve come back from the writing dead

And I accomplished all this from the from the comforts of my bed

Brimstone Brew~#OctoberWriting #poetry #Rhyme #themagicshop


Wanda and Zelda were two very poor witches

Their powerful magic could not bring them riches

They lived in squalor wearing nothing but rags

Using newspapers for blankets with pillows being trash bags

Most of their spells were mixology based

Making some fall in love or have their memories erased

But, the needs for these potions slowed down to none

People found new ways online to get all their magic now done

Both witches then thought of a way to cash in on a fear

The dread that a man has of running out of beer

They opened their spell books and a bartender’s guide

They then created an ale that no guy had yet tried

This drink would replenish all that was swallowed

An endless stream of cold brew in bottomless bottle

People paid it’s high price due to it’s high demand

It was a full working brewery in the palm of your hand!

Zelda and Wanda became wealthy and are no longer blue

Living life to the fullest because of their Brimstone brew
