"I'll Have a Beer" by PeterRHW
I'll have a beer, then start to write
A masterpiece which even might
Be published, famous, make some dough,
Another beer's the way to go.
Already I can see the light.

My words and rhymes all taking flight
With rhythm, this is pure delight.
I think it's going well and so
I'll have a beer.

Some steady progress now despite
A little blurring of my sight.
Another beer will help the flow.
Where was I? Damn it! I don't know.
Best look tomorrow, but tonight....
I'll have a beer.
