advice for the novice enamored

she is an original
a girl who holds
to principles
flower-1467112_960_720she thinks that
imitation is
the truest form
of thievery
she derides most
adaptations as
artistic limitations
thinks cheap remakes
don’t take a lot
of creativity
so if you want
to woo her
if you hope to
score some time
start your ballad over
and scrap that crappy rhyme
