Too read a book,
is to enjoy a tale,
and that does never get stale...


Is to enjoy a tale,

Never is a book stale,

Reading increases intellect,

And does so without fail…

 

Reading a book,

Does for the reader,

To take a look,

Into the writer’s ability as a “seeder”…

 

The writer does plant the seed,

The reader does of it read,

Taking from it that which he or she does need,

Sweat & tears does the writer relinquish,

Up to and including their ability to almost,

For the reader, bleed…

I'll do the sweat, the stiff muscles and the staying up nights thinking of twists in the plot. But I will not… I will not cry any tears or bleed in my beers–I don't drink beer, it just rhymed–for any lousy tale that I write. Is that why I'm not famous?
