I’m getting blisters patting myself on the back here, so groan and roll your eyes all you want. You think I really care? Of course I do!!! Are you kidding? You guys are the ones that totally puff up my ego to a nasty tumor sized level. What would I do without you???? Okay, on with the poem…
10,000 hits approaches
Can I do it by Thanksgiving?
Wish I could shuck this crappy job
And take up blogging for a living
1000 likes I passed today
and a handful of new follows!
It’s got me thinking that I’m all that
(In the warm fuzzy glow she wallows)
I’d like to thank you all, my poor long suffering readers
Who dare to skim these nonsensical pages
Random, silly, stupid, and shallow, Oy!
Sorry folks, here you don’t get wisdom for the ages
You keep coming back and I eat it up
As my power and influence grows
Soon the mediocre shall rule the world
(Like a raving lunatic she crows)
A mere 4 months I’ve been your friend
In this vast and wonderful blog-o-sphere
I still can’t believe the crap that I say
Is something that you want to hear
Now dear friends, I must ask you
While I have you in my grasp
What should I do, oh meek little me
To accomplish my mountainous task?
What pearls of drivel should fall from my lips
To grab that 10,000 hit prize?
With what manner of “meaningful content”
Should I attempt to assault your eyes?
Six days isn’t long, but I think if I try I can do it
my friends, but of course your help is needed
I’m asking for some sage advice
and I promise it will be heeded
More poems? More Stories? Just oddball musings?
Perhaps some more Mark Gormley?
Please tell me, oh wise ones, what shall I write?
I value your thoughts, and for them all I thank you warmly
Thank you for allowing me to shallowly beg for pity clicks and indulging me with your ideas for inspiration
By the way, tomorrow we will start this quest with MORE BAD POEMS ABOUT FOOD! YAY!!!!
