Time for another NaNo. ^^

Tallihensia's NaNo Theme


The Rum Tum Story is a curious thing
If you offer it plot it'd rather have lemon
If you put it in a paragraph it would much prefer dialog
If you put it in dialog then it'd rather have a paragraph
If you set it on first pov then it only wants third
If you set it on third then it'd rather have first

The Rum Tum Story is a curious thing
And there isn't any need for me to shout it
For it will do as it do do
And there's no doing anything about it

The Rum Tum Story is a terrible bore

When you let it in, then it wants to go out
It's always on the wrong side of every door
And as soon as you're at work, then it likes to get about
It likes to lie in your mind's corner
And it makes such a fuss if it can't get out

The Rum Tum Story is a curious thing

And there isn't any need for you to doubt it
For it will do as it do do
And there's no doing anything about it

The Rum Tum Story is a curious beast

It's disobliging ways are a matter of habit
If you offer it snippets then it always wants a chapter
When there aren't any snippets then it won't give a single word
If you offer it epics then it sniffs and sneers
For it only likes what it writes for itself
So you'll catch bunnies in it right up to our ears
If you put it away on the mental shelf

The Rum Tum Story is artful and knowing
The Rum Tum Story

Doesn't care for a cuddle
But it'll leap upon your brain in the middle of your work
For there's nothing it enjoys like a horrible muddle

The Rum Tum Story is a curious thing
The Rum Tum Story doesn't care for a cuddle
The Rum Tum Story is a curious thing
And there isn't any need for me to spout it

For it will do as it do do

And there's no doing anything about - t it!


(There wasn't a good line to take off of for "but doesn't want to do a damn thing while you're at home and have time for it," or I would have added that in too. ^_^)
