ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Sippy Cup

Marketers may call them “Insulated
Mugs,” but we know where they really came from.


Oh, precious little sippy cup!
I’m glad your lid fits tightly
‘Cause otherwise I’d spill my drink
And stain my clothes. Unsightly!

I know that you were made for kids
But I won’t be too picky
‘Cause when adults spill drinks, we end up
Mortified and sticky.

So thank you, Mr. Sippy Cup,
For ending cataclysm—
‘Cause now my drink will quench my thirst,
Not crush my narcissism.
