Writing a ghazal about writing a ghazal. Very meta.
To Write... a Ghazal

It is my sacred duty to write.
Not just drivel, but beauty to write.

I'll craft careful sentences, polished
(but perhaps not too snooty), to write.

No tempting distractions will stop me,
I'll ignore every cutie to write.

No passionless phrasing will haunt me
I'll evoke something fruity to write.

Enough of this procrastination,
Time to sit on my booty and write!

Form: Ghazal
A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name... The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
