Poem About Having To Write A Poem

I was required to write a poem for an English literature class. I was short on time and have barely a smidgen of experience in poetry. I wanted to write something elegant. This is what I ended up with.

This is like when I first started poetry. I used to stay up all night on a single line!

It is time
To rhyme a rhyme
A poem I must write

Pen is poised
But so much noise
My mind is like a kite

Poetry
As you shall see
For me is like a fight

I insist
I clench my fist
I better do this right

I try this
And I try that
I try with all my might

Coffee cup
Time's almost up
I will be up all night

No delay
It's due today
It's dawn, I see the light

Much time spent
Inelegant
Please understand my plight

So

Here ya go
You need to know
Submitted filled with fright

I LOVED this poem! Made me laugh. I understand completely, but I think a fantastic poem was born from what she perceived as ineptness! Thanks for sharing.
