Poetic License: All write with me

May 25, 2017
By Joe Pacheco , Island Reporter, Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

It's the wrong poem

At the wrong time,

Though the lyric's lovely

It's the wrong rhyme,

It's not my rhyme,

But such a clever rhyme

That's it's all right with me.

It's the wrong ode

With the wrong scheme,

Though the theme is heavy

It's the wrong theme,

It's not my theme

But such a lofty scheme

That it's all rite with me.

I'm not sure I'm happy

Dear Muse that we've met -

I'm strangely attracted to you.

So many poems

I'm trying to forget,

Won't you help me forget

Some poems too.

It's the wrong role

In the wrong play,

Though you'll try to act it

It's the wrong way,

It's not my way

But there is one way

If tomorrow you're free,

Yes, I'll playwright,

If you play right

'Cause it's all write with me.

you can play right

With me It's the wrong guy

With the wrong girl,

Tho' the affair's exciting

It's the wrong twirl

It's the wrong verse

In the wrong style,

Though the verse is witty

It's the wrong smile,

It's not my verse

But it's such tempting verse

That if you'll make it free,

Then it's all write,

Yes, it's all right,

All rite with me.

It's the wrong role

In the wrong play,

Though they'll try to act it

It's the wrong way,

It's not our way

But it's the only way

It'll playwright with me.

It's the wrong guy

With the wrong girl,

Tho' the affair's exciting

It's the wrong twirl
