ARBITRARY “LITERARY” AGENTS
I have thoroughly lost my patience,
With arrogant, ignorant “literary” agents,
Like snide merchants perched in ivory towers,
They randomly dispense their publishing power,
I think you must now get the gist,
Of why, as a writer, I am pissed!
They critique: “Sorry, your writing’s not what we seek,”
Even though, at most, they’ve seen a tiny peek,
Do they pull the whiskers off kittens
Before they steal their kitten mittens?
But if one replied, “I like what I’ve read,”
Then, I’d probably love her more than my dog Fred! 😊
