You are invited to the opening of a new book.

You are invited to the opening of a new book.

I’m rather bookish
If you’d just take a lookish
Open the pages, you’ll see.

Indices full of all manner of things
And chapters quite varied in length
A family tree that includes little me
Which is no great surprise –

“Give me strength!” You all cry. Who is this guy? Who states the blooming obvious with glee?
His book gets us snoring; it’s bland and it’s boring; so we’ll just keep ignoring, tra-la-lee!”

“Really? ‘Tra-la-lee?
Is that what you all think of me?
I’m saddened to hear your cruel words.
I’m a poet
You know it
And once I even won some awards…
Well, one, a book voucher it was
I know that because
I done it
I won it
And you weren’t there
To see it
Your loss.

Anyhow, I have a dust-cover,
For an ancient book-lover,
That is tattered and worn at the seams
I still keep with writing
And find it inviting, inciting my words and my dreams”

 

RSVP
Your thoughts
(On the above)
To poor me.

  1. Books are good… but not half as good as those yet to be written šŸ™‚

  2. A book, yes, I have stacks of them…need to make time to read them, but alas, I’m too busy reading your words…much better I think, there for I am, reading you.
