Why Writers Stay Single

You're a rough draft.
A not good enough draft.
But, I'll make a man -
u-script out of you.

I'll cut,
edit,
and rewrite.
Discuss you with my crit group
on Thursday nights.

I'll purge,
polish,
and plot.
Develop whatever
character you've got.

Till happy or not,
we're ending.

A hopeless task making someone over. Even ourselves. Loved the plays on words and humor.

Not sure this is limited to writers--was married to an accountant with a similar desire to balance my books.

They say that a woman marries a man thinking she can change him, but a man marries a woman thinking she'll never change. Anyway, this is what you get when you allow heterosexuals to get married.

I love love love the "I'll make a man-u-script out of you."

This was funny but oh so true...

Mary said...

Ha -- there is definitely truth here.

PattiKen said...

Oh, this hits a little too close to home... Truth has a way of doing that. :-)

I can think of several writers who would get a kick out of this, especially the manuscript part. I'm impressed that you write and share so much poetry.
