"Write on your blog for me" you said
and that's just what I did
You sent me something cool by post
It even had a lid
I took it to the supermarket
it couldn't pay for food
I took it to the clothes shop
They said I could be sued*
I showed it to the hubby
he said "that's nice dear"
I put it on the mantelpiece
but it couldn't pay for beer
The bank said "overdraft is at its limit"
EARNING would be good
The Bank Manager said "the blog is lovely"
"But it doesn't pay for food"
The gifts are piling up round here
My ego's fit to burst
But when I want to get on the bus
There's nothing in my purse
So hey cool dude next time you write
Remember what I'm worth
I show your product at its best
My services don't cost the earth
Let's agree a price my friend
These gifts are cute I know
But until you show me some green notes
I'm afraid I've got to go!
* I tried your trick there - i.e. I am taking something now, and see what I send you later - it's a surprise!
