I Belong

Twas the Help Wanted Ad Post




Twas the night before last, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,

The dishes were drying in the kitchen with care,

In hopes that some else would soon take care of them there.


The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of mayhem danced in their heads.

And Abigail, my kitty, and I in my Superman pants,

Had just settled down on the couch to read internet book rants.


I was looking for new books to read for the night,

When I realized that this review was far from alright.

It went on and on about nothing, the thought did appear,

How was I supposed to tell if the book was a dear?


“This is wrong, Abigail!” I yelled outright,

Freaking out my poor cat, who had been out like a light.

Howling and cursing, she stood and left my poor side

As I got up and paced in the dim of moonlight.


I can do better than that,” I called out to the cat,

“These poor shmucks are unworthy of the reviewer coolness hat.

I have more talent and knowledge of all things book-wise

And can come with much better reviews for audience’s eyes.”


The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow

Gave the luster of mid-day to the screen of my Vizio.

When, what to my wondering eyes should apprear,

But DFT’s website, and a Help Wanted ad sincere.


They are looking for people with my style of passion

To become part of the team to talk the latest book fashions.

To read and to write and to post with great pride,

Spreading the joy of books to readers, far and wide.


My opinions will not go gently into that good night

Like the rays of a star in the dying sunlight.

But I worried I was unworthy of such an awesome spot

That gives you free books whether you like them or not.


Should I try and apply whether I get it or not?

Should I take the leap of faith for goodies unbought?

“I will do it!” I declared to nobody near,

I shall fill out an application for DFT’s newest reviewing peer.


So back to my computer I ran with great haste

To see if my writing and experience meet DFT’s taste.

I have nothing to lose and everything to gain

By living the dreams of book ranting while still being sane.


The moral of this tale for all of you out there

Is take the chance and see if you dare

Try for your spot on the Dark Faerie Tales crew

With all my wishes and hopes that you do.


Sheila was inspired by Dylan Thomas and Clement Clarke Moore
