There is nothing ‘novel’ about this book of mine.
You said, “that means ‘new,’”
“But it’s not,” said Time,
“It is twice as old as I am,
And that’s awful hard to find.”
I’ll just take it back,
If you say you won’t mind,
I will buy a novella,
Or something poorly designed.
So many words on these pages!
Just what do they mean?
Do I read the first and last words?
Or start somewhere in between?
I can only just sit and bend the seams,
For I have no idea what all that scribbley stuff means!
