Lets get down to business

To defeat the month

Are you ready to do this

Or do you want to punt?

You’re the slowest typers

I’ve ever met

But you can bet

Before we’re through

Wrimo, I’ll make a writer out of you


Tranquil as your hero

But on fire within

Once you reach your climax

You are sure to win

You’re a hungry, tired, caffeinated lot

And you haven’t got a clue

Somehow I’ll make a writer out of you


I’m never gonna catch a break

Say goodbye to those who know me

Boy, was is fool in school for cutting English

I don’t know how to raise the stakes

Hope I’ve got the story in me

Now I really wish I wasn’t doing this


(be a writer)

We must be swift as the coursing river

(be a writer)

With all the force of a great typhoon

(be a writer)

With all the strength of a raging fire

(be a writer)

Mysterious as the dark side of the moon!


Time is racing toward us

Till the 30th arrives

Heed your every word goal

And you might survive

If your unsuited for

This wordy war

That’s okay, just stop, you’re through

How could I make a writer out of you?
