I sit alone and write my book
And hope the reader will take a look
At my published novel
(Should I grovel?)
Please choose my book instead of others
Oh wait you're looking at the cover
Will you look at inside pages?
Why or why do you take ages?
Open the book and check the price,
Read the first paragraph - oh this is nice
Flick through pages, nod the head
And just when I think hope is dead
You approach the cashier, pay your money,
Cashier wraps it, all is sunny
Out the door, and leave the mall
Yippee I've just made a sale!
