Ode to My Readers…

Ode to My Readers…

Just a little something to my readers answering some expectations…Enjoy:


Oh my VP pit crew

I know you wish time flew

A finished Crashed for Christmas

I’m sorry, I just can’t do


I know you’re gonna be

A teensy tinsy miffed

And hmm and haw and moan

At my lack of this gift


So don’t wait around on Christmas Eve

For an unexpected gift

The last thing I want is to deceive

But I just can’t write that swift


And as much as I’d love to

It’s something I just can’t do

For others to say different

Oh no, it’s just not true


I know you wanted Colton

Wrapped in a big red bow

A five hundred page completed book

To read so nice and slow


Now you know I love you dearly

And would push publish if I could

But let me state this clearly

It just wouldn’t be so good.


I want it to be perfect

The wows, the highs, the lows,

But rushing to finish early

Will just disrupt my flow


To give is better than to receive

Of this I sure do know

But I want you to believe

I’m not purposefully writing slow.


I tried to up my admin’s ante

But I suck at writing prose

Give me Sex and Cotton Candy

Now that shit I can compose.


So thanks for being patient

As I write of Ry and crew

I don’t want to be complacent

Until their story’s really through


So sorry to burst your bubble

And be a great big Grinch

But know I appreciate you dearly

I say that without a flinch


I know you are all eager

You wait with baited breath

The conclusion won’t be meager

Or result in Colton’s death.


So thank you once again

For all of your endless support

An epic ending they deserve

Of that I won’t fall short.


And so now the countdown begins

The clock it ticks and tocks

You sit on needles and pins

My Facebook page you stalk


A date my friends is coming,

And Christmas it is not it.

Your anticipation’s humming,

But right now I’ll give you squat.


There’s only one last thing to say,

I’ve thought this through and through

On my mind heavily it weighs,

That you know how much I RACE YOU TOO!


Have a great weekend!
