The birth of an idea

When a deadline is approaching, and no idea is near
I feel like poking my eyes out
With a mower blade from John Deere.

I sit and think and nothing comes — Oh, damn! I saw a flash!
But that fleeting little bit of thought
Went right into the trash.

Alas — could this work? A photo of Saddam?
Who would have thought a terrorist
Could bring me any calm.

An image of his messy hair from prison days appeared
And now my mind is running off
In a direction just plain weird.

Do truckers have bedhead, I ask myself? Why sure, I guess they sleep.
So why not make a funny ad of it
For over a truck stop sink.

    I think this sounds oddly familiar. Bed Head? Saddam? Must be along the lines of truckers, Willie Nelson, and a place called Flying J. Sounds like one of my projects:)
