Twas the week before Christmas, so there was little time
to spend on a blog post or create a short rhyme.
My first book is gathering dust on a shelf.*
The next one is not going to publish itself
I wish I was nestled all snug in my bed,
but thoughts of this deadline dance in my head.
A blog post this week won’t be missed anyway.
I might as well punt the attempt for today.
But as I considered postponing the pain,
an interesting thought lit up in my brain!
Rather than light a candle or curse,
Why not parody a holiday verse?
But that poem is long and my time is constrained,
and the once a week schedule has been preordained.
So I’ll publish this bad boy to fulfill my vow,
but I’ll keep it real short and end it right now.
Shameless Christmas self-promotion: Books make a perfect gift. Why not give that special someone this special book: “A Slippery Land”. Half of gross sales go to Haitian relief efforts till end of 2016.
