Know the Game You're Playing

I was perusing a poet's blog I like, and came across this brief article about pop / rock stars who have had their book of poems published (much to our dismay).

It's all so obvious, that without the name to back them, these books would be tripe at best. Some of them are so painfully bad, there should be legal consequences.

Take our dear Mister Billy Corgan, once of Smashing Pumpkins fame...

A twixt the twine and flowers divine/Devise the deign in this copper wane/Aghast the mask of ripping change/As I lie, aloft amongst the highest paid
The moral of the story: Don't just do something because you can. Do it because you must, because everything in your being says go. Oh, and ask for some feedback.
