I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.
-Oscar Wilde

Oh great Teen Ink, thou art my loving god.
I pray to thee for naught but just one thing:
A publication of my lowly work.
Oh great Teen Ink, just grant me this one wish!

I sit and think of what you might expect
From me. I try to brainstorm ideas
Of something You would want to read. And I
Fall back into my slump, my writer's block.

For what could I attempt to write that could
Appease Your Majesty? That somehow would
Appear upon the Most Discussed front page?
At my own answer here have I arrived?

Oh great Teen Ink, thou art my loving god,
So, pay my work attention, would you please?

I applaud you for your cleverness. A simple idea, and yet our dear Teen Ink responded to your plea by admitting you into that longed for magazine. Your language is grand and your loyalty clear.

Writers are a less dangerous version of the career criminal. Everywhere they go, they see the potential for the perfect crime. The difference is that writers have better self control.

Nice Idea.
