I’m in fits and starts

A little bit off, and my cart’s

            ahead of the donkey.

The muse has hit, but my words just dart

            Way off the page.

My teeth grit, is this true art?

            Or nothing better than scribble?

So I sit and wait for my pumping heart

to hurry and catch up with my brain

I’m in fits and starts

My stomach’s a pit, such a worry wart

            Am I.

Poetic? Not a wit, but I’m doing my part

            To find a way to entertain.
