What's The Big Idea? - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

Greyson made a living
selling plot ideas
to aspiring novelists.

As a result
his wealth had increased exponentially,
as had the world’s quota
of fourth-rate writers.

One day, however,
Greyson was reading the local rag
and noticed an article
in the “Literary Luminaries” section
that mentioned one of his clients:
“Joe Fitzmeyer, a local author
strikes it rich with sleeper

The name of the novel was
“The Plot Merchant.”
