Ode To Improvisation

You've mastered the art
Of learning a part,
Now those days are gone;
You're on,
And it's all about seizing
'The Moment'.

But -
'The Moment'? Just passed.
Could you not be arsed
To get in gear,
And steer
Towards some sort of a plot?
Of course not.

The key is to rhyme;
Do it all of the time,
You see, I'm
Just fine
With pretending that no rhyme
Falls flat.

And, speaking of which,
The joke that you just pitched
Fell flat in the mud -
A dud.
They said improv. was painless.
They're brainless.
