Here's A Pop-Up Thought In A Pop-Up World - Poem by Michael Shepherd

'Make Your Writing Pay'
'Work From Home'
'Find Love Fast'

Career guidance
isn't always easy
to come by and
too many of us
take what comes

here's a thought
that just popped up:
a little discreet prostitution
carried out from home
and faithfully recorded
blow by blow
so to speak
for eventual
screen rights and
celeb status
might well bring a
triple reward
a metaphorical
fortune cookie
