Some say they write because they have to. I write because I donít have to. No one has told me I have to write, and as such it becomes an exercise in freedom. I might at times joke about being a slave of the Muse, being summoned out of bed at ungodly hours, but the truth is I have volunteered, and I heed her call gladly.

My best muse hates me, and my next best muse thinks I was the worst thing that ever happened. Gack.

Sorry for being The Bad Cop, Erik, but our own poems aren't allowed on GT threads.

It is just as well. I understand. Coppers must enforce the letter of the law, or who else will? Someone has to, so I do not blame you.
Best,
Erik

P.S. I was going to say what if the thing has no line breaks? and what constitutes a poem? But I leave that can of worms to the realm of Sophistry.
