The titles are here for all to see. There are so many they may confuse thee. Hmmm, that is the point at each and every joint. A cash grab as they try and pick up the tab.
A book does well.
The author was swell.
Or just won out.
Either way, time to shout.
Shout, not in that way.
I'm sure the author likes their pay,
But now their title is grand.
It will get used across the land.
In come the sharks,
Looking to make their marks.
Time to rip off a ton.
Let's have some title fun.
Put a "the" in the title.
Now your book won't be idle.
Put a "A" in one.
Damn, you'll sell a ton.
Spell a word another way.
That will sure get you some pay.
Maybe even use the same one.
That just has to be done.
Then they will see,
How great you are with your spree.
You can rip off a title with ease.
I'm sure your writing will please.
Then they will buy more.
No need for a rip off encore.
You will be the next big thing.
Doesn't that have a nice ring?
All because you ripped off another,
Their words you didn't smother.
They got big and now it's your turn.
You deserve a great return.
Whoopsy, yours still pales.
Yep, you hit the third rails.
No jolts for you though.
You just ate crow.
Did it taste grand?
Was it fun in rip off land?
I bet you had the title first, right?
Damn that author for first taking flight.
Notice how the rip offs come when a book does good? Same for movies in ones hood. The titles get ripped off a ton, and usually, they are crappily done. Trying to trick the reader/viewer is all it is. Some make a good living off of such a biz. Like those direct to video guys. They trick many with their lies. Ever go rip off at your sea? Sure not the way to be. Better off going and eating some grass. It works for my little rhyming ass.
Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.
