Thought

This poem was in response to a request to write something in the "Pleiades" form. For this, it doesn't have to rhyme, and the syllable count isn't restrictive. The only rules are:
  • It should have seven lines.
  • Each line starts with the same letter.

There are some days you wonder what
the right course is and what is not;
that feeling that you have to prove

the facts to hand, you're pressed to move.
Then all at once you know they've got
the brains of slugs - so sod the lot.
