Sometimes I fear that ev'ry thought's been thought.
That no more new ideas can ever be.
That all creative writing is for naught.
That we have simply seen all we can see.
But I do not believe this to be true
To make new art is not to waste one's time.
For even when the concept isn't new,
A fresher take is not always a crime.
For there's a finite number of Aesops
To base a work of poetry around.
While having new ideas would be tops,
The premise is not logically sound.
While stories new compare to stories old,
That does not mean they're not worth being told.
