This is a lie.
I can write a poem,
No problem.
But it's easier to write why I can't,
Rather than why I can.
Sure, I can make words rhyme
At the drop of a dime.
But that doesn't matter
Because my poems don't have to rhyme.
How easy is that?
Just writing words on a page.
I could go on forever
But, why should I continue writing a poem
About why I can't write a poem,
When this is proof I can?

The author's comments:
This piece was created during a class activity in my creative writing class. The prompt was to write a poem about why you could or could not write a poem, and this was my result.
