Sonnet by Ello
Based in part off of Shakespeare's Sonnet 100
Ode from Robert
Where art thou, Moonrat, that thou forget'st so long
The random author shenanigans that
Creates this worthless song.
Remember, I was supposed to touch trees
Express feelings of low testosterone
But sucking up to women's lib
Makes a man dry as a bone.
Return, oh forgetful Muse and straight redeem
By providing a personal service
Like operating my car radio and winning back my esteem
Fair Moonrat, pro-active though you may be
An advocate does not in fact sell books
And our energies spent elsewhere would set us free
For a great publishing business is not built out of serendipity,
Because God smiles only very infrequently - at me.

sonnet by Ello
Kudos to Ello for not only mimicking Shakespeare but managing to quote heftily from Robert in the process!
