Another Line Of Work

 

This poetry thing

is not working out

I work at it everyday

but so far

have only earned $4.50

for all my time and trouble

needless to say this is below

minimum wage

and beneath my dignity

so I will be resigning my position

and seeking another line of work

perhaps writing Obituaries

unlike poetry

death is certain.

DK if you want to cash in on the death bandwagon you have to aim a little higher. I mean why write obits when it's the undertakers who are creaming in the cash?

All you need is a black suit and a mournful expression.
If you have at least one of those you are halfway there !

DK -
Unless you're one of the "you know who" -
I have some unwelcome news for you:
If you hope to make cash from prose or verse
Your situation will go from bad to worse! ?

Obituaries sounds pretty good dk
People pay lots of dosh for their dead'ns
Make sure that they pay in euros and cents though
You'll make more than invites for weddin's ?
