You People Are The Reason I Don't Like Poetry

Jimmy Stewart, reading his dead dog poem.

Garrison Keilor, reading his dead cat poem.

Garrison Keilor, weekday mornings with his Writer's Almanac, words intoned to the lugubrious strains of "Gi Mig En Dag"

I wish your pets undead.

I wish your thoughts unread, sweetly meant as they are.
