Im Just Saying

I have a glockenspiel in my brain

keeping time

with an umlaut

I am not bragging

Im just saying

about the umlaut

it makes all the difference

keeping time that is relative

there are hundreds of people out there trying to not write poetry

and failing miserably

you can not write poetry without a glockenspiel in your brain

that goes without saying

Im just saying

without a glockenspiel there is no iambic pentameter

or impeshtigo

in your poetry

stop

and think about it

where have all the impeshtigoes gone

gone to poets every one

a fat lot of good it does us
