The musicals showing on Broadway

Have run out of stories to portray.

So, new ones they seize

From older movies —

Just pack in some songs, and it’s pay-day!


I eagerly await Silence of the Lambs: The Musical. (Criticism aside, I'm going to see Allegiance, tomorrow. There are still great things happening in theatre.)

I know I promised I would stop at six limericks. But now, I have stopped at eight. Accordingly, your relief is expected to be twenty-five percent greater. You're welcome.

I now return to writing my novel's final scenes ... honest.

I need to stop thinking in rhyme.

I hope I can do it in time.

But on a side-note,

A story I wrote

Is right here. It won’t cost you a dime:
