What joy! At Last! An honorarium!

To read my verse at the aquarium

What angst! What pain! My poems stank!

The performance ended in the tank.

    Loved this comic approach to the image that seemed so serious (before!).

    Sorry to hear your career at the aquarium is all washed up. I have to say, it is alive and thriving at Magpie Tales. Thank you for the delightful fun. =D

    Laughing – what a delightful read – a giggle and a shudder – seems like poets should be more appreciated. I mean, after all, look at sharks. What do THEY do?
