We’re going to pass on this one
But thank you so much for sending
It thank you so much for the rare
Chance to read such brilliant writing
It’s really such a shame because
It’s really quite good it’s just that
It’s really true that we’re going
In a different direction now
Maybe something else you wrote might
Fit what we’re doing here maybe
Send something a little later
On but maybe don’t send it so soon
Wow what a great piece that was
I just wish we wanted it.
