I was looking up referenced letter poems and their authors, when I stumbled
upon "Shut up and eat your toad". Up until reading this, the suggested
letter poems were about death. This, I say with a twinkle in my eye,
manages to slip death in the very end, but what a funny story along the
way! I am a new at being a poet. I am an artist. I like the letter poem;
I don't know why. Would love to hear comments on it from experienced

This poem has been viewed 3734 times but not commented on. One can only
wonder if this is because there isn't much there to comment on. Once upon a
time I took the occasional stab at poetry and never liked my work to be
talked bad about so I'll say this, at least the guy is still writing, thats
more than I'm doing.
