Petitioning the Muse

I’m not asking for much

Just a piddlin’ little poem

Just a few bitty words to string together

That ring triumphant as battle cry

And paint the world a vivid new hue

Just a few bitty words to string together

That wring giggles from their lips

And pendulous tears from their eyes

Just a few bitty words to string together

That rise up waves of dazzling light to

Dash themselves against the mundane

Just a few bitty words to string together

Which reverberate from all ten toes

And zing up spine to lodge deep in skull

Just a few bitty words to string together

I’m not asking for much
