Wednesday Is Poetry Day

In honor of Peter Jackson's latest film, here is some ape poetry:

Teaching The Ape To Write Poems

by James Tate

They didn't have much trouble
teaching the ape to write poems:
first they strapped him into the chair,
then tied the pencil around his hand
(the paper had already been nailed down).
Then Dr. Bluespire leaned over his shoulder
and whispered into his ear:
"You look like a god sitting there.
Why don't you try writing something?"

Sweet. Wednesday may be poetry day, but anyday is good for ape day.

Don't ask, I have no idea.

Excellent advice for writing...anything. Maybe I should apply that advice to my own blog.
