GBE 2: Blog On — Week #48: “Now”

This is for GBE 2 Prompt 48

Now is too soon.

Now is too late.

Now is never the right time.

Now is not the best time for this prompt.

Unless you want navel gazing free-verse

Where nothing rhymes

And I’m not even pretending there’s meter.

Now is not the best time for this prompt.

I’ve got too much disaster on my mind

And all of my successes

Are looking like failures

And I’m not financially solvent

And I’m full of frustration

Depression and procrastination.

(Look, I stuck in an actual rhyme there

For those of you who need one.)

Now is too soon.

Now is too late.

Now is never the right time

So you get stuck with navel gazing free-verse

Where nothing rhymes

And I’m not even pretending there’s meter.
