Wrong Idea (#722)

Well, I just changed my mind,
It occasionally happens I find,
I get an idea and give it a swing,
Later, I find out it doesn’t really sing,
Was it a bad idea- I don’t think so?
It just doesn’t have that post-new glow,
Like any idea that’s shiny and new,
I thought surely it was something I had to do,
But truth be told, it quickly lost its luster,
With more holes than Swiss, it served only to fluster,
If it were a short story, maybe I’d see it through,
But since it’s much longer it’s not something I want to pursue,
If so early in the writing, I really want to quit,
How on earth for months on end can I commit?

Any Thoughts?
