20 second poem

From what I've learned,
the instant you are struck
with a seeming strike
of genius
pen it.
Write it with a flourish
if need be.
I would.
Because,
while the rest of them
the joggers the smokers
the candlestick makers
are all going about,
you'll be the one with
the mighty pen.
So write it,
It's really all you have, right now anyway.
One word a little
too late
a little
too little.
It's all okay, 
you're just writing.
And how could that,
be wrong?
