I have to write this poem, I don't know what to write.
Should I do a sci-fi or a classic schoolyard fight?
Should I do adventure, fantasy, suspense?
Malice, mystery, murder, a poem that makes no sense?
Should a write a romance, oh they are such fun!
Maybe ancient history or a pancake who could run?
All these cool ideas whirling round my head,
making me so tired, I think I'll go to bed.
I have to write this poem, I'm sure it could be fun.
But now I realise something,
I realise I am done!
