Writers: Ever cheat on your muse?
So all your talents see good use.
Bored of writing the same old thing,
You and a new muse have a fling.
It’s a dangerous game to play,
Get caught and you will rue the day.
But your new muse is so much fun,
And great stories come by the ton.
Until your old muse finds you out,
Then you endure your lover’s spout.
You recall the great times you shared,
With the first one who ever cared.
The two muses team together,
Make your words suffer bad weather.
A real bad case of writer’s block,
Spend all day staring at the clock.
Until a third muse comes along,
Whose ideas can do no wrong.
Your books have never done so well,
The writing’s like a magic spell.
But your old muses are upset;
So even they intend to get.
They sneak in and ruin your work;
Your third muse now thinks you’re a jerk.
Again your writing’s in a rut,
Contact with muses is sealed shut.
You’ve no idea what to do,
If only you could find a clue.
You write about your three muses,
And all of their crazy ruses.
This book becomes a bestseller.
You’re a really lucky feller.

Never bored – each story is a different genre so I have no trouble with my muse!
Behind every great writer is a great muse. 🙂
I’ve written only one one book, but all nine Muses collaborated on that one: http://wp.me/p30cCH-9P (I guess I needed a lot of help!) 😉
You’re not Monogamuse! 🙂

Enjoy your poem. My muse is versatile, when she’s around
Thank you. 🙂 If anyone ever figures out how to invent a muse compass, it will sell like hot cakes.
