Believe Me

I’m writing this poem and
it’s a tremendous success,
very very successful, as you
can see. It even says so,

right there in the poem,
I know this for a fact. And
in fact, I heard it from
an extremely credible source,

absolutely, I guarantee you,
in fact, it’s really rather amazing
that, well, I hate to tell you,
but this is going to be a big,

big incredible event. I’m going to
write a great, great work and
I’m going to make editors
pay for that work. Mark my words.
