Arts Lab Writing            The Arts Lab: Writing            Arts Lab Photography


by Nevada Kerr

Gags and fads were all in fun
I made good use of the tales I spun
And when my comeback failed
I had a dirge to wail

All the way through writer's cramp
Dead to honor, lost to shame
I drafted tramp and vamp
And dauntless drunken dame

Now the jig is up
And that is that
I blotted out the words
Then tore up all the pads

Scrawling blindly in the dark
I made a slip and missed the mark
With only wayward thoughts to think
I can't think without a hint of kink
Or a sprinkling of the demon ink
