LOST IN THE BLOCK By Akande Iqmat

Written by Editor


I can’t seem to build a castle, like I do

I can’t seem to mould a brick, it’s hard to do

I can’t seem to mix my thoughts, it’s glued

Neither can I speak to my pen, I’m muted

I can’t seem to sing my lyrics, it’s odd

I can’t seem to play my tunes, I lost the keys

The more I try to play the cards

The faster the table turns              

I heard it is called writer’s block

A block not needed in my court

My words seem to be gone

But my pen refuses to be gunned

Bye I say to you writer’s block

 Leave my court I need not a check
