The Case Of

It was meter that fed my fever.
It was lilt that led me astray
and had me drooling like Pavlov's poet;
I couldn't keep my pen away.

The verses' pure potential
tempted me to the crime.
But, everyone knew when I did what I do
and edited every line!

It was me!  My confession for Corey's Whodunit at Real Toads

Cool obsession conspiracy confession.

Lol.....I thought it might have been you...but I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. You will notice that It was not me that wrote an poem that would be heralded as the perfect poem...and mostly because of the lack of editing! Great write MZ...you and your Voo Doo dolls. Don't let the absinthe cloud your mind next time!

Haha! Excellent come back to all that smack talk Herotomost was bandying about.

Hannah said...

As often the case conditioning of the mind may get things done without realizing it. Nicely MZ!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Thank you, MZ, for exonerating me! Whew! I was afraid the Word Police were coming for me.

"Pavlov's poet" — perfect! And I'm ready to believe Sherry didn't do it, just as long as she got to retire to the west coast of The Island.
