A certain rabbit is displeased by Mav's output pace.

I'm in the midst of a creative 'Saharra'. No oasis' to be spotted.

Then write a story Mav. You can never go wrong with a story.

I think a short poem is much in order. Doesn't take as long to churn out, but it takes hell of a lot more talent and creativity to pull off right.

I am overdue for the next part in 'Confessions'... Hmmm...

A stanza then, as I have no idea where to go with it:

What have I got to offer you
But the shirt upon my back?
How could the jingle in my purse
Be the sole thing I should lack?

A stanza is still a poem.

Nah, to a woman, guys lack not just money, but looks, manners, fashion sense, common sense, muscles, yada yada yada.

Long story cut short, fickle creatures!

Hey, I'm a woman and all I want in a guy is height and a sense of humour. It's short and sweet, I like it. And like Nicho said,

A stanza is still a poem.

Where have the years gone?
As Death approaches me, I
Find I never lived.

You're the Lord of Flies;
Filled with twisted lies.
Yeah, now you rule the world.

Wh*re of Babylon,
You strike down the Dawn.
Yeah, now you rule the world.

Dirge

The instrument has been prepared,
Prepared to play a tune.
And I'm afraid I shan't be spared;
My end can't come too soon.

Through all this hell and misery
I bravely struggled on.
Adrift amid the troubled seas;
A stain upon the dawn.

The voice is readied now, to sing.
O'er me, it's words shall pour!
Soon now from this life I'll spring,
Midst Cherebum, galore!

I turn slowly to face the West,
And press the barrel to my breast.
