Letter to the Editor 2

Letter to the Editor - in poem format - is the prompt issued by Totally Optional Prompts.

You might have access to better print papers than I do. If so, consider yourself lucky. If not...you may send this to your local editor.

Hi, That's a great piece, it really made me laugh, in fact I'm still laughing now! What a way to deal with officialdom in general!

Oh, this is priceless! The other English teachers and I sit at lunch reading our local paper looking for all the spelling and grammatical errors!

And the letters! It's unbelievable how poorly written they are!
