Dewey Decima(l) System


Madame Librarian, a word:
The card catalogue is broken.
It’s been awhile since we’ve spoken,
and perhaps you haven’t yet heard
(on the phone, or by little bird),
that my book has just been published.
Now, some say that it’s just rubbish,
but my mother says it’s quite good.
So be a sweetheart if you would,
and just place it on the shelf, yes?


Gettin’ a little silly with a quickie Decima for Gayle’s prompt over at dVerse. Come play!

    Yes! ❤ lovely decima De 😀
    Beautifully executed.

    Lots of love,

    Haha…love your silliness and I love this especially because every time I go to write decima my computer changes it to decimal!

  3. Glenn Buttkus says:

    Yes, Gayle, my Mac does the same thing; machines can be so droll & obtuse; smile. I like the levity here, with a sprinkle of projection.

  4. This was fun and still it rings true…what happened to card catalogs and dewey decimal systems? I miss old libraries. Yet..Google won the suit to be able to make hundreds of old books available that’s a bit of good news. This was clever and well done.

  5. Ha.. Yes trying to get your book into the system of libraries and stores is a challenge indeed.

    Loved the silliness of it all! I haven’t been to a library in years I read on my Kindle now.
