Crown of Chaos 3 - Picking a Topic

(This poem is part of a heroic crown of sonnets. For more information, see "Crown of Chaos, Crown Jewel")  

 But I can't let this crown go incomplete

So I must choose its contents rather quick

Each sonnet's topic cannot be discrete

Uniting all the poems is the trick.

 

So what shall be my unifying theme?

It must be something that I know quite well.

It would not do if I ran out of steam

Before I finished all I had to tell.

 

Perhaps I'll write these poems about me

(reflexive pronouns are a bitch to rhyme)

If that is what my topic is to be

I feel that I should stop wasting your time.

 

I said I'll do this, and that is no lie

I do not want to be that kind of guy
