NOT IN THE MOOD…

Robin Amy Bass: Not In the Mood…Not in the mood to get intricate
Not in the mood to spill guts
Not in the mood to do anything
Listen to ifs, ands, or butts

Not in the mood to inspect what’s inside
Not in the mood to attempt one more try
Not in the mood to do anything
Anything other than dance

Not in the mood to get intimate
Not in the mood to confide
Not in the mood to depend on my friends
That’s already been done and tried

Not in the mood to discuss politics,
The weather or who will be Pope
Not in the mood to discover myself
Figure out how I will cope

Not in the mood re-edit this poem
Or turn it into a song
Or figure out if the rhythm is right
Figure out where it went wrong.

Not in the mood on this bright Sunny day
To stay inside when I’d much rather play
Not in the mood to do anything,
Anything other than dance.
