A wise philosopher named Calvin once said:

“You can’t just turn creativity on like a faucet.

You have to be in the right mood.” Calvin was right.


Some days, creativity appears on the page

as easily as a buttered Slip-n-Side coated in grease.

Other days, the creativity is lodged in my head

like a hair-clogged shower drain.


On those days, I have to work on unclogging the hairs

One by one, strand by different coloured strand.

However, I think enough is enough and quit.

After all, there’s TV to watch.
