Coma Victim Becomes Writer Of Children's Books - Poem by Lori Boulard

A news story out of LA reveals that
people with severe head injuries
not only recover reading and memory skills
through studying children’s books,
but that one coma case
has gone on to much success
as a published writer.
I guess the point of the story
was something about
miraculous potential of recovery,
second chances,
and all that.

And all I can think is:
So that’s what it takes to get published.

    This poem is LOL funny. The last lines are brilliant. It's always appropriate for the writer to take an ironic look at him or herself, and this one will amuse everyone. This poem is a good example of how short and sweet are often the best guidelines. (Report) Reply

    I enjoyed that, Lori! Thanks for sending it thru again, I'd seen it the first time around, not gotten to it, and then forgotten. You write children's stories too? (Report) Reply
