Editor’s Lullaby

by December 28, 2013 0 comments

(In response to a loud sequence of Waaaa! and Aaaa!)

Thank you for your submission.
I regret to inform you
that we are unable to use it
at this time of night.

There’s nothing new here,
in your indignant tears.
They didn’t grab me.
This needs a better twist.

The title of this should just be Waaaaaa,
but really, with all these repetitions
and self-indulging emotion
your poem is beyond salvation.

We wish you good luck
in placing your poem elsewhere.

Will you kindly shut up —
don’t ruin your relationship
with the editor.

editors note:

Yes, friend poets – Editors! Can’t live with’em, can’t live without’em. – mh
