Dedicated to a Booksie member who not only accused me, on site, of cursing my own children but also of stealing her hackneyed words and ideas. Denials will be pointless as I have copies of
everything. I will neither forgive nor forget.

Burning The Book

 

It’s a shame in a way because it is kind of nice,

but the sight of it’s sickening, burning like ice.

 

I’ll collect my kindling, select some sticks,

I know what I’m doing, which I should pick.

 

It’s really quite puny, so slim and so small,

worth the value – no not at all.

 

The words are so cliched, originality lacking

and yet this author feels she can go attacking;

 

I’ve stolen her words, well that begs belief,

for all of those used she herself was a thief.

 

I’ll tear some pages and add them to flame

relieved that they’ll never confront me again.

 

The pictures are gorgeous but it’s no loss to me;

all on the internet, their use is quite free.

 

That paper it shrivels and crumbles to ash;

just like her insults, confined now to trash.

 

It’s like a weight has been lifted, now it is gone,

all traces of someone who really is wrong;

 

her superiority might be her undoing

for it’s really so clear that her mind is ungluing.
