Misery in June (the merry month of June)
A group of readers do embark
Upon a readalong this June.
A miserable month to read a book
It’s the merry month of June.
A hoot it will be (thanks Ti!)
Just wait and see ♦
We’ll tweet & scream; No woo woo to be seen
This misery-able month of June.
We’ll do our Uncle Stevie proud,
and tweet out loud our mirth;
Though fears of misery and pain expected,
our duty to read unshirked.
The merry month of June and misery abounds
Authors trapped by crazy fans;
Drinks are spilled, the sledgehammer* sounds.
A poet I’m not
I beg forgiveness for this rot;
I blame it all on Dot. (Parker, Dorothy)
“I cannot stand this frantic misery!” I quote** her
and sadly thus I end this now – Nothing rhymes with Dorothy.
Please twitter-search #MiseryRAL and add this hashtag to your concerns and questions and sharings and odd thoughts. THAT is the only rule. No sign up, just a virtual hand-waving saying, “I’m in!!” The book is short; don’t read too fast and spoil the fun!! Put the book in the freezer if you must; let us know why and when. More things a-comin’. Do comment if you want emails and if you like snail-mail, email me (or DM via Twitter) your address – no matter where in the world you might live.
CHALLENGE: if you want… write your own damn poem.
Challenge the Second: Anyone want to make a button? My computer is dying and I cant’ seem to figure out which application is best to create one… thx
* a clue…
** from Dorothy’s short story SENTIMENT. I found another reference to the word MISERY in her awesome short story BIG BLONDE, page 303: “Misery crushed her as if she were between two great stones.”
