The Blurb

First, I'd like to thank Becky of Becky's Books for giving my book Poem Depot a rave review on Goodreads. She LOVED LOVED LOVED the book and I love her for that. But now I turn my attention to THE BLURB. Over the years I have been asked to write many blurbs for people, but I must tell you, I don't enjoy it for quite often Blurbee writes God-awful stuff. In any event, although many seek blurbs, and many write blurbs, how many have written an ode to a blurb? None, I venture. Until now.
 

The Blurb

 
The blurb's a noun
and not a verb,
except for my
late Uncle Herb,
who loved to blurb,
and blurb,
and blurb.

Wonderful! I'm sure Blurb would thank you if he wasn't so buy blurbing with Uncle Herb.

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

Ugh... that's "busy" not "buy"-- too busy to bother with spell check too, evidently.
