Expect Delays


This simple prompt has me fixed!
My words generally flow like fresh
water. But today I am directionless.
Here's what I will not say:
No talk about my past mistakes.
Or reminiscing about what has gone
before. Not the wars, civilian deaths,
nor Osama bin Laden. Demands of
long form birth certificates are too
arduous for me to revisit today.
Or properly educating our nation's children.

Those are not things to tackle.
Surely, tomorrow will bring an epiphany
about what to pen for "yesterday".


~~Is this cheating? ;o) The Six Words Friday prompt is "yesterday", and I've had some difficulty beating writer's block. Have a better idea? Visit Melissa  here to find out more~~
