The Creative Mind by Jez Farmer

The creative mind as sharp as an axe
Has no time for acts of complacent thought
His soul not for sale and cannot be bought
In imagined worlds formed in parallax
His muse shedding her artificial facts
In his darkness of thinking they are caught
And fingers lightly strike words as they ought
Compiling the notes into story stacks
And later he writes filling in the cracks
In fantasy worlds and adventures sought
In battles of wit hero’s lessons taught
And dreams come to life in lyrical wax
The story told in a series of acts
With a victory the ending he sort
