Picture Book Writer

Picture book writer, writer…

Agent Dearest, will you read my book?

‘Took me years to write it, will you take a look?

It’s high-concept with a low word count

(But no illo notes)

‘Cause I wanna be a picture book writer,

Picture book writer!

It’s the funny story of a genius cat

(And his owner who is unaware of that)

He spends his nights running after mice

It’s a steady job,

But he’d rather be a picture book writer,

Picture book writer!

Picture book writer, writer…

It’s thirty-two pages, give or take a few.

I could make it shorter if you need me to!

I could tweak the ending if you’re not “in love,”

Overhaul the arc,

ANYTHING to be a picture book writer,

Picture book writer!

If you really like it, you can have the rights!

It will make a million for you overnight!

If you must reject it, could you please be kind?

Send your answer quickly,

‘Cause I NEED to be a picture book writer,

Picture book writer!
