Roll Over Longfellow!


I guess I could say so many blogs, so little time.

This one I’ve decided should be done in rhyme.

I think it’s best that it not to be too long

I’m finding excessive length is wrong.

I’d best do something that’s mass appeal

Just have to keep it simple, keep it real.

I’ve tried a lot of different directions

Done most everything except erections.

It’s hard to figure out what people want

Some so picky they dislike my font.

I can do humor, serious, satire and silly

I’ve tried plain, ugly, beautiful and frilly.

Nothing seems to generate much reaction

I can’t get no satisfaction.

Some think I may feel sorry for myself,

No, those thoughts I’ve put on the shelf.

Making someone laugh or cry is my goal

I’ll keep at it with full heart and soul.

So I’ve chosen to write this blog in total verse

If no one cares I’ll be none the worse.
