Okay so I've had a look around Booksie and now it's my turn to add something to the site. I hope you like this poem about my first impressions of the site.

I signed up to Booksie

and had a quick looksee

around this sociable site.

I was happy to see

that people like me

want to think and dream and write.


I read a kind heart,

Played her part

In bringing people together;

Double investigation

brought consternation

to a man at the end of his tether.


A poem's special feature,

one sea-dwelling creature,

shook hands in a how d'y' do?

And loving provision

of enhanced television

is described for me and for you.


And now it's for me

to set my pen free

and offer my work to this site.

I'll admit that I'm nervous,

but much more - I'm curious;

do you think that this poem is alright?

It's a fine bit of writing, not quite nail biting, but, hay, it works for the many. So keep up the good work, you may publish a book, and sell each one for a guinea.
