Kill Your Darlings

"Kill your darlings." I read in a book

Behind my glowing keypad, I shook.

Kill my darlings, you say?

Just pick up a rag and wipe it away?

Backspace, backspace, backspace, I press.

Making my paragraph noticeably less.

But I don't think I'm fooling anyone, I guess,

I really must start fresh.

I have no idea

I honestly can't pin down whatever the quality of it was tat de you laugh, I mean I admit it's silly, but I never knew I was so funny to people I mean whenever I tell a joke pretty much no one laughs then I accidentally write a hilarious poem.

Hilarious Writing

"...backspace, backspace, backspace..." the writer/editor's bane - and reader's glee. This was fun to read and fun to laugh for ~Allets~

wow people seem to think this is so funny.

I guess I can have faith in my sense of humor again idk. I just wrote this when I had been writing something, and yeah, this poem is goofy.
