My Idea

I know I had an idea,
I had thought of something witty and sharp to say,
Something pretty smart that would blow your minds away,
Something that would have you thinking for the rest of the day,
I’m sure I had something smart to say.
It was funny and wise all at the same time,
And its true meaning was disguised behind clever rhyme,
It was short and sweet and just purely sublime,
For all of two seconds it ran through my mind.
I know I had an idea,
I opened my mouth and was about to say something profound,
Yet nothing came out not even a sound,
I searched every nook and cranny in my mind but it couldn’t be found,
This idea of mine, just couldn’t be found,
I know I had an idea,
I had it with me when I walked into that door,
I had it with me when I was offered the floor,
Infact I had that one and a couple more,
But its gone now and I am a sight for eyes sore.
I know I had an idea,
I just can’t quite remember what it was,
Now they are all looking at me because they think its a pause,
Maybe I will say the longest most complicated word and then add a cause,
“for those who fear long words hipoppotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia”
Blank looks then… applause.
