THE 'W' DILEMMA


           

            My last name starts with 'W'.

            It stands for 'Woe is me'.

            'Cause bookstores sort

            by author's name,

            ...alphabetically

 

            While 'A' names get top billing

            and middle 'M's are fine,

            I'm always on the bottom

            getting shoe marks

            on my spine.


            Wedged down here,

            between the best,

            I'm in good company.

            'Cause when folks stoop

            for E.B. White,

            they just might notice me.
