Booksie has been a total revelation,
My works read by random population,
Readers as few as one or as many as two hundred
And it is true they are often well outnumbered -
You see 'likes' to reads are pretty discouraging
And although at first I thought 'fans' were encouraging,
I realised quite speedily, cos I'm nobody's fool,
I had messages on my bleeding wall,
'Please read my book and I'll return the favour?'
I have to be honest, it leaves a bitter flavour;
So now you see I'm more than a bit suspicious,
Perhaps you lot could be less ridiculous!
And the ones who think I am digging my own grave
Can waddle off 'cos I think I'm bleedin' brave!
