Pride, we’re told, goes oft ‘fore crashes

Many times I’ve seen it so

Why, just days ago I boasted,

“Writing more!” – and since, you know,

Haven’t put out one good poem

This will bust my pen slump though

Just as long as I don’t tout it

Bragging, “Back on top the game!”

Therefore let’s make nothing of this

Lest pen quail from all the fame.


Thanks to Linda Luna for teaching me this challenging form.
