Goodreads Poem of the Month

by Gabe from Colorado

                                       Damn all the good books   
 
 
 
                Damn all the good books, 
               They call out my name, 
               I reach out to read them all, 
               Falling flat on my face with shame, 
               The timeless classics Don Quixote would say, 
               The newfound glories, Clancy and James Frey, 
               The poets like Poe 
               and Dickinson 
               Ms. Emily I feel your pain 
               But I haven't the time 
               To read every non-rhyme 
               and clear the shelves of Humor, 
               Mystery, History, Architecture 
 
               and all the good books call out 
               my name "Bend my sheath." "Break my spine." "Get familiar with me." 
               I haven't the time. 
               Damn all the good books!
