When in April online-poets fall . . .

    When in April the sweet showers fall
and pierce the drought of March to the root, and all
the veins are bathed in liquid of such power
as brings about the engend'ring of the flower, ...

The Canterbury Tales (The Prologue)

    When in April online-poets fall
to scheme to sell their lonely verse at all,
could online-publishers'
promise pay off*,
Or is this merely foolish naifs' jerk off?

For Pay to be my Pal would taste so sweet,
But who is fooling whom?
And this I tweet.

*online publishers Associated Content, Bukisa, Helium, Triond, etc. all work with PayPal to pay writers
