High Or Low Away We Go!

No matter what there is always a high and low to just about everything at ones hut. Could be this could be that, either way it will come to your mat.



Yipeee!
A million copies were sold by thee.
That is oh so great.
Nothing could be a better fate.

Whoops, nuts at your door.
Now you have to write more.
It has to be another hit,
Or away the same nuts will spit.

One hit wonder.
Takes away your thunder.
Boo to you.
Is all you get at your zoo.

But hey, still have a million bucks or so.
So they can go suck their toe.
Or you could have another hit,
And be the new it.

Now you have to travel to and fro.
So much fun at your show.
Damn, have to do it again,
Half the year away from your den.

Always on the road.
No longer in writing mode.
The price of fame,
And playing the autograph game.

Now you are so great,
Along comes the hate.
One simple word,
And all call you a turd.

Have to watch everything you say,
Or for it you could pay.
And pay and pay and pay,
Each and every day.

Build up people like,
But they love when you take a hike,
Bashing away,
All through the day.

So take your million bucks,
Go feed some ducks,
Screw the rest at your zoo,
Just give them a whoopdi friggin doo.

Sold only one or two at your zoo? Well at least none of the above crap comes due. That is a good thing at your sea. Still, I'd rather have the money. Then I'd just run and rhyme away under our sun. Now I will go eat some bass with my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. Just one million copies that had been sold?
    More than 'had achieved the target' one is told
    Writing more
    Books galore
    And looking forward to seeing much much more!

    1. Be nice if one million came due
      But yeah I'd go for two
      Not likely but never know
      As the book shelf does grow

  2. Even without the million bucks, I sometimes feel like that...

  3. I haven't sold even one
    but at least I'm finally done
    and now working on edits
    sometimes I don't get it
    like why is there a comma
    in the midst of all this drama?
    Good for you for selling so many
    that ought to make you a shiny penny.

  4. Even half of that fame wouldn't be too bad. Or maybe not, because I would just stay inside and hide then.

    1. Hiding I would do
      Giving the fame a big screw you

  5. So very true - fame would have a lot of drawbacks
    So one should be thankful that they have real life as a fallback
    All of a sudden, with fame, it's not about the writing anymore
    It's about the next big thing you can put in a store

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah always about pleasing the masses
      Who tend to talk out their asses

  6. Eating bass with your rhyming ass totally cracked me up. Good points about fame. I don't want that but I can't deny I want the million sales. Or maybe just a half million. :D

    1. Yeah million sales I'd take any day

  12. Oh, so I shouldn't groan,
    Complain, kvetch and moan
    Because only five copies sold
    When I released my first book so bold?

    Actually, I believe all you say
    And for that, low sales are A.O.K.
    I hope your own books bring in lots of dough
    And keep you always on the go

  17. The nice thing about being a world class miniature painter is the ability to keep my privacy. And I don't have to go to signings or be on talk shows. I'm rich, I'm famous, but I've got balance in my life and that's what counts.

    I'm also full of shit :)

  18. Such a shame that name acclaim
    is part of this dreaded writing game.
    Self-promo this, and BSP that,
    come in for a signing, come in for a chat.
    Most writers are shy folk, that's why they write,
    to hide in the corner not dance in the light.

  36. Well fame &fortune you may find alluring
    might get exhausted with all the touring
    would the life be fascinating & enduring

    Money may be great but, I'd take a quiet place
    hidden away by a lake from the mass embrace
    there I could think, write and have some space

    I think I'd have to finish my book first..lol..
    now, excuse me while I write a verse..

    1. haha yeah by the lake is the place to be
      No one there to bother thee

  40. This reminds me: The Human read a crazy piece on Huffington Post the other day where some struggling writer said J.K. Rowling should STOP writing so that there'd be room for other writers to succeed. Uh.......No. By that standard, Steven Spielberg should have stopped making movies, Beyonce should stop singing, and Yo Yo Ma should hang up the cello.
