If I Could Write Like Isherwood

“The impotent bitchery of the slave”
A sentence about which I rave
Is a line from an Isherwood novel
The idea of a person having to grovel
It’s evocative luminous and strong
And certainly not overly long
His writings I greatly admire
There something to which I aspire
Though me I’m just a hack
The finer touch is what I lack
I plod away at the keyboard daily
Sometimes sadly occasionally gayly
I wish the results were far better
As good as Isherwood to the letter
