When you are caught in the headlights
of an oncoming poet’s wittering,
it would be really useful
if you could just press the mute button
bringing calm to an, otherwise,
chaotic outpouring of poesy.
Then, you could concentrate on other things,
more important things,
and await what the future brings
without the inconvenience
of rhyming couplets
and Iambic Pentameters
doing your head in.
So, let’s all pray for the day
when the Poet Mute Button
comes our way.
