Shailaja's Cure For Writer's Block

I dedicate this poem to our faithful leader of Blog-A-Rhythm, 
Shailaja Vishwanath. 

She keeps us all inspired, makes us laugh and keeps us writing. 

(GULP! *sweat pours from brow at the the thought of those pointy-toed boots*)

Do you suffer from Writer’s Block?
Don’t you wonder why?
You sit and watch that ticking clock
And feel like you’re going to cry,

Sit yourself down and write something small
It doesn’t even have to be that wise,
Get some words down and try not to stall
That’s what Shailaja would advise,

If all else fails, Shailaja can help
She knows just what you need,
Of course it just might make you yelp
But she promises you won’t bleed,

See those boots she’s wearing
The black ones with the pointy toes,
So slinky, shiny and daring
Guaranteed to cure blank page woes,

Just one jab is all it will take
Then the writing will flow,
So much for your Facebook break
On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!
