Poetry By: Indie Skreet

Committing professional suicide? Possibly, but please don't merely flatter me or take me for a fool?

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!
