Aw, snap! It’s time for another rejected piece of writing! So, as you may have guessed from the title, this one’s been rejected from lots of places, some of them famous, some of them not so much. Which probably doesn’t speak much to the quality of the poem, but whatever. I think it’s clever.
It was originally written in late June/early July of 2011 during a trip to Las Vegas with some friends. Honestly, that’s probably enough context to figure out exactly what’s going on here. Enjoy!
