I'm Having A Hard Time Dumping My Load...

Once upon a time I contracted with a beatific-type woman to edit/proof her Christian poetry.

I charged her about one-eighth of what I would charge for actual writing. And by actual writing, I mean technical/academic writing. Even if the poetry was exceptional, which hers was not, I have never been able to formulate a fee for such purely subjective work.

Anyway, because this woman is such a fine human being with a heart of gold and the artistic aspirations of a minor saint, I will not disclose her name, nor the book she actually published.

Generally speaking, it was an abysmal piece of work. Yet I found this poem particularly inspiring.
