Write the ethereal,

Not the physical

It has to be poignant,

Be sure it's metaphorical.

That's all the narrative

That we can stand and respect,

No more, no less

A thousand words to be exact.

Listed above are the strict rules

That's not all,

The Essay rules

Which are mere opinionated fools.

I can't emphasise

Of how not only I groan and sigh

When sitted before a blank parchment

To fill something in the big blank space, I try.

It's too difficult

And don't you just agree

That we should all write the same way

When essays call for creativity.

No wonder everyone moans and scream

When they have to write one

No matter what anyone says

It's a tedious task to get done.
