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 thought ‘fans’ were encouraging,
Realised quite speedily, as I’m nobody’s fool,
I had messages on my bleeding wall,
‘Please read my book and I’ll return the favour?’
Have to be honest, leaves a bitter flavour;
So now you see I’m more than a bit suspicious,
Perhaps you lot could be a little less ridiculous!
And the ones who think I am digging my own grave,
Well you lot can move on, ‘cos I think I’m pretty brave!
