“Your doing what?” A friend yelled at me
“Your letting them read, and have it for free?”
I want them to read, and see what I see.
Their comments are wonderful, it has to be free
So I’m sharing with you, a small problem I have.
To cover expenses, a problem so sad.
Such a small problem yet, a problem indeed.
Blogging cost are accelerating thus causing a need
Mailing service monthly bill, and Hosting services too
Miscellaneous expenses, oh what shall I do
“Ask for donations, their comments are fine
If they like what you’ve written, they’ll give you a dime.”
You might think this poem was written for money for me
but it’s about the expenses, and keeping the site free
So now I must ask (humbly) for a penny or two
my PayPal™ account will accept money from you.
With heavy heart I have asked, and now must carry on
my account name at PayPal™ is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for reading, and spending your time
Thank you for sharing, your comments are fine
I’m sorry I’m asking for money from you,
but think for a moment, just what would you do?
