I almost didn’t write this poem
I wondered, I pondered
Walked around my home.
I thought of an excuse not to write
Fed the pet, placed a bet
Went and got a bite.
I went for walk around the block
To clear the mind, find a line
I must have writer’s block.
I turned the computer on again
Stared at the screen, at a scene
I was finding this a pain.
I almost put off procrastinating
What a shame, no words came
Sat there contemplating…
We almost didn’t save the Earth
Thought of money, of our tummy
Didn’t know what it was worth.
