The Writer's Christmas Wish

A poem written during a Secret Santa writing challenge last December.

This work was handwritten and produced by a human writer; no generative AI got anywhere near it.

secret santa, I’m out of luck coz

every scene’s sure to suck

chapters crash, darlings die

readers flee, I want to cry

editors refuse my calls

time to bounce off all four walls

should words no more I get to write

alliterate this Christmas night

needless nouns and vapid verbs

tasteless tripe, boring blurbs

an author’s life kicked to the kerb.
