Stuffed with Poets
We are no longer
accepting unsolicited manuscripts.
We charge a $3 submission fee.
We receive 500 poems per year
and accept 5.
Apparently, the world is stuffed
with poets. People who will scribble
verses for pennies or less.
Voices roaming freely, being shot
down constantly like doves.
So, the question becomes, do we put
down the pen and no longer try, or
go on dodging contraries?
The answer is always the same.
