On Pining for Real Cream

Non-dairy creamer;
Powder’d heathen substitute
Why taste you so bad?

Coffee profaneth;
Shopping negligence punished -
You make me so sad.

On you sick fuckers

Confined to my bed
Wallowing in self-pity
Won't share drinks again.

On Poor Publication Practices

Publishers should not
Deceive unwitting readers.
Number your series!

This weekend I started a book that turned out to be second in a series. Nowhere on the book did it say “book two” or “sequel.” I’ve noticed this trend a lot lately (ex: “A Harry Dresden Novel” instead of “Book 4 of Harry Dresden”). There aren’t words for how annoyed this makes me. Rawr!
