National Poetry Month

In honor of National Poetry Month I wrote this poem about my job I wanted to quit before I got used to it:

Life of a Liberrian

Working in the liberry isn't scary;
Quite contrary.

I'm an Internet cop
And I tell running kids to stop.

I order patrons to turn off their yell phones
And to mute all those crazy, annoying ring tones.

I help kids find Mother Goose
And Dr. Seuss.

And computer class
Is always a gas.

I explain these books aren't for sale
To all those who are beyond the pale.
And serve those released from jail:
No, I won't be your bride,
It's not a service we provide!

You are so funny!! I absolutely love your sense of humor. Now, if only the librarians at "my" library were this funny...
