Dedicated to you that are writers – you will understand!

I’ve finally written something,
The magazine accepted.
All my other efforts
Had been quickly rejected.

This time my writing effort,
They used without restriction.
It was the check I wrote them
For my year’s subscription.

Very few writers avoid the indignities of rejection slips. I once threatened to paper my office with mine. Editors seem to care nothing about Save The Trees. My rejection slips alone have killed at least one pretty good-sized tree.

I finally discovered that the only thing that I could write that was guaranteed acceptance was the check to renew my subscription. I wrote that concept into a poem and called it ACHIEVEMENT.
