Things That Keep Me up at Night: A Poem

RATED S for Stupidity and Slightly Silly Sequences.

There are cats on my bed
Everywhere I look.
*snap* *snap* *snap*
And adverbs and adjects
All over my book
Book
BOOK!
*snap* *snap* *snap*
I see
The way
You look
At me
It keeps me up
All night
Like "if" "but" or "and"
At the start
Start
START
Of a sentence,
It ain't tight.
Without a hint of repentance
I hit backspace as I type.
And if I open with a dream,
I'll never dream again.
For the entire world
Will take away my pen.
Pen.
PEN!
*snap* *snap* *snap* *snap* *snap*

YOW!
