TEN REASONS FOR BUYING POETRY
That is to say, ten good reasons.
- Most of it's thin
- Your friends will think you have taste.
- It gives you something else to think about.
- Buying it's easier than writing it.
- There’s room in the margins for lists and doodling.
- It doesn’t answer back.
- Look in your kitchen cupboard. I bet there's no poetry in there (yet).
- It has no best-before or sell-by date.
- It makes the author happy.
- It makes the publisher even happier.
