I wouldn’t say the tone is particularly high around here, but I’m going to lower it to about as low as I can go without swearing, nudity or hairy armpits.
You know I am currently editing my South Africa poetry collection and I intend to publish it as an ebook. The editing is going well and I will soon have to start thinking about the technical aspect of the operation.
No, that’s not where the poo comes in, but I am sweating at the thought of it.
Actually, that is where the poo comes in: as I am a complete novice at epublishing and will have to learn from the bottom up, I thought it might be a good idea to have a trial run with a small collection of poems that I wrote for fun and don’t mind giving away for free because I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind would pay for them.
I may have mentioned that I have written a collection of poems about poo (you see, dear readers: a literature degree is never wasted); the collection is small and manageable, unlike the South Africa poems, and I think people might enjoy the lighter side of excrement.
I have the following titles in mind:
- On Poo
- Feces Theses
- NO.2 Cycle
- The Lighter Side of Excrement (that one came to me when I typed the previous paragraph)
- Turd Words
- On Poo Corner
- Crap Poems
- The Allure of Ordure
- Poop Poems
- Manure Musings
I would like – with some trepidation, I must confess – to invite you to suggest further titles: vulgarity is acceptable; levity is encouraged; rudeness is not.
Please leave your suggestions in the comment box. Once I have a few, I will put a poll in the field (watch where you step…).
An interesting aside:
While researching the correct spelling of faeces (the English, naturally; but I went with the American for the visual rhyme), I came across a fascinating site which tells you how things should look; and why they look like they look if they don’t look good: http://www.faeces.org.uk/
Wrinkle your nose all you want – like death and gaining weight, we all think about it.
Or is that just me?
