Save the Poets

for as little as twenty-five words per month
you can help a starving poet
right here in America
that’s less than one word a day

maybe you have words you seldom use
verbs that are no longer part of your everyday language
terms that have fallen out of style
perhaps you could spare a simple conjunction

it doesn't have to be a big word
it doesn't even have to be a good word
to a hungry poet
any word could be the word
that makes all the difference

Won’t you help?


  1. Charlie, I don't mean to sound cheap or stingy, but I am at a loss for words. Great stuff.

  2. Forwarded to you Charlie from Jane Leslie: Antidisestablishmentarianism. Jane says, "Antidisestablishmentarianism, gathering dust since the 19th century. I'm happy to donate it to a starving poet!"
