When famous people write picture books the world is the winner
So many people hungry for schmaltz have a 32 course dinner
They have excelled at acting, governing, singing, leaping, writing novels or thrillers
And now with dubious assurance reach their hands to picture book tillers
When a celebrity rhymes it must be admitted
That on the surface it seems like a crime was committed
In well trafficked life messages they abound
With leaden morals the couplets resound
If fame makes their otherwise noisome words sound great
Be thankful that celebrity picture books creates of them a spate
So let us drown in their insipid provender
To their odious charms let us surrender
Challenges these books urge us to undertake
And so in our endeavor should you surely partake
And what is our challenge?
What shape our literary phalange?
The most dreadfully meaningful rhyming couplets submitted will, as you surmise,
Win an unnamed yet desirable prize
So cast your entry into the comments below
And fame or something like it victory shall bestow.
