Book Burning
There's a man in Kansas City
Who is angry and sad
Who is upset about America's declineing respect for the printed word
I quite agree
In an aveage house today, you'll find more tv's and ipods
Than books of any kind.
It seems reading is too much work for Americans these days.
With attention spans of goldfish.
He has collected over 20,000 books in his stint of runing a used bookstore
He tried to give them to the libraries and thrift stores
He tried to give them away for free to random people passing by
But they all turned him away
Either too full or not interested in reading!
Not interesting in reading?!
Woe, woe and sorrow for America!
You know what he's doing with those books no one wanted?
He's buring them with tears in his eyes.
He's doing it as protest
To show that not reading a book is just like burning it.
A book is meant to be read
Not to sit as a paperweight or collecting dust in some forgotten corner
So I remind you all
Love your books!
Please use them like they were meant to be
READ THEM ever now and then!
Author's Notes:
I agree, you might as well burn them and have fun roasting marshmellows.......Because a book unread is a book thats wasted.
