Oh for a Genie in a lamp

To remove my writer’s cramp

While I dream stories aplenty

Oh look, now there’s nearly twenty


All vying for my attention

Each one now in contention

Tossing each aside not right

Goose pump, oh what a fright


Romance, mystery, fun or joy

Writers ink I quickly employ

Services of a genie not required

My brain is willingly inspired
