Why Did Agatha Christie Sell 2 Billion Books? - Poem by Saiom Shriver
She wasn't a pornpeddler
She didn't pepper her text with product placement
She wasn't a booze hawker
whose words knocked readers
off the wagon...nor a warmonger.
She rarely described food
let alone dead animal food
in her writing.
She didn't recount grizzly scenes
left by her killers...
seldom boring body
and clothes descriptions
put in as filler
She didn't need fearmongering
violence.. to sell a thriller.
She wrote against the corruption of imperialist oil thieves'
She was brilliant... compassionate and understanding.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
