31. Advice for Newbies

Don't aim too high.  Remember you suck a lot.
Your journal's dull.  You whinge and say fuck a lot.
You're not permitted to steer the scansion;
treat all devices with apprehension.

One draft should take at least half a century.
Don't push it.  If you're feeling adventure-y
just shove the thing in a drawer and lock it.
Pour some cement in the keyhole socket.

The critter's job is murder and massacre.
If bleeding, death, or pain-in-the-ass occur,
don't spank the critter the way they spank you.
Note that the proper response is thank you.

Can you look grave and maintain decorum?
Then welcome!  Come in and enjoy the forum.
