Just idle thinking
I wish I had a dollar
for every word I wrote.
I'd build myself a castle,
surrounded by a moat.

I'd live like J.D. Salinger,
contented with my fame.
No one would recognize me
but they'd all know my name.

But who would pay me money?
I'm not Salinger; I'm me.
And you, you are the lucky ones,
I write this stuff for free.
