Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Inspired to write

MY thoughts seek valiantly to express,
MIND ever active, juggling slipp'ry phrase,
HAS great joy, needs none to impress.
THUNDERSTORMS of inspiration last for days.
THAT light-bulb flash outside my window pane...
BROOD on, cloud ominous, in deep resentment.
FOR your disruptive influence in vain,
HEAVY eyes perhaps, but no discontentment.
HOURS on end, persistently endeavour,
UNTIL, ,shrugging their shoulders in defeat,
THEY yield, acknowledging this girl is clever!
RAIN falls on their parade, they can't compete.
ME, so thankful for this inspiration,
WORDS flow with ease, complete with punctuation.
