I wrote this poem in 2004 and registered it in the summer on Poetry.com. Now they send me lots of emails of adoration and for only $59.95 I can have a leather-bound edition of the book it will be published in if I would only damm well agree to have it included, which I haven’t. I’m saving it.
However, if you rate it for me and I win, I might get an Apple iPod, which is probably the one Santa forgot…he always forgets one good little boy or girl every year and sadly this year it was me. Oh well, good things come to those who wait and pray hard.
Here’s the link. I expect complete honesty in your rating, my friend: http://www.poetry.com/voteforme/poemvote1.asp?PID=12323074
Happy New Year everyone…
