"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a b****. You've got to go out and kick ass."- Maya Angelou


So I grabbed myself a pen,
and got a piece of paper,
I’ve been thinking of something to write,
for over an hour.

Its hard to concentrate with the giraffe munching,
and its hard to write when the lion is roaring,
this is not the jungle,
why are you guys here?!

The monkey says I should write about bananas,
and the elephant said I should write about the
GINORMOSITY
of his ears.

The elephant seems to be conceited,
and the monkey seems to be starving,
the giraffe won't stop munching,
and the lion continues roaring.

The lemur ate my pen,
he swallowed all the ink,
the ant stole my paper,
built another hill.

Since I’ve got no pen,
and now I’ve got no paper,
I’ve been contemplating on what to do next,
for over an hour.

I have found that when I hit a writer's block, if I just keep writing whatever comes to mind, something amazing happens. Such as this poem.
