Poetic Injustice

I've been told by others that I write some pretty decent poems. Some examples of which have on occasion made it unto this blog. The problem is trying to get any earnings from the best of them. Now it appears I realy should write far worse prose as it looks like being more profitable.

A set of 35 of William "the worst post in the world" McGonagall's poems are heading to auction and are expected to sell for £6,500. Now that's £185 pounds a poem which is better than most literary publications give for publishing one poem. Only down side is McGonagall has been dead for 106 years so I'll not be making that money until at least 2114.
