SAN MATEO, Calif. - Aug. 12, 2016 - s4story -- "I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING...YOU'RE THINKING 'WHAT KIND OF POET WOULD SEND OUT A PRESS RELEASE PROMOTING HIS POEMS FOR BAD POETRY DAY?'"

"Well, I'm not just any bad poet, says Robert Barrows of San Mateo, California...my book of poetry may be one of the worst selling books on Amazon! Maybe even THE worst selling book! (Although I am sure there are many books on Amazon that may have sold nothing)...

SO...HOW BAD ARE THE SALES?

I've only sold three books so far! Three books...Count 'em...Only three books...and that's since 2014.

My income on that is a whopping 30 cents per book. Wow! 90 cents! That's barely enough for a pay toilet and not even enough to buy a lottery ticket.

AND MY POETRY IS NOT EVEN THAT BAD...

SO HOW BAD IS THE POETRY...OR HOW GOOD ARE SOME OF THE POEMS?

The best way to find out is to cough up a dollar and download an ebook called "Crazy Robert's Poems and Potential Song Lyrics" on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L2UDYNC

(HEY, BUDDY? WANNA BUY SOME POETRY?)

WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BE GETTING IF YOU BUY THE BOOK?

"You can see a free sample of one of the poems on the Amazon page, and the page also shows a table of contents listing the poems by name. To read more, you'll have to spend a buck, says Barrows, and it's worth it, because many of the poems are indeed very entertaining. Plus, the poems are very easy to read and they are not the kind of poems that are so heavy that you can get a hernia reading them. It's entertaining poetry for the masses and it's definitely worth a dollar!"
PLUS, MANY OF THE POEMS COULD ALSO BE TURNED INTO SOME GREAT SONG LYRICS FOR EVERYTHING FROM BLUES TO COUNTRY TO HIP-HOP SONGS.

Some of Barrows' poems have already been turned into songs.

A) Two of the poems that have been turned into songs are called "Run For Office" and "Big Bucks." The poem version of "Run For Office" is included in the book and people can hear a free clip of both of these songs at www.barrows.com/music.html

There are also links on that page where you can download the songs for 99 cents each on iTunes.

B) Another poem on which a song demo was done is a poem called "Definitely Self Serve." (It's not exactly a poem about filling up with gas.)

SOME MORE POEMS THAT COULD ALSO BE TURNED INTO SOME GREAT SONG LYRICS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

C) "FOOD CHAIN"

One of the lines goes like this:

"We're all birds of prey and you're just DNA in the Food Chain."

D) "IT USED TO BE MADE IN AMERICA"

This is a poem about the loss of jobs and the consequences of the outsourcing of manufacturing to other countries. It paints a vivid picture of conflicting economic forces, and in addition to reading it in "Crazy Robert's Poems and Potential Song Lyrics," you can also see it for free online at www.itusedtobemadeinamerica.com and also at www.madeinusa.us.com

"It used to be Made in America" has been published in several places and several verses of the poem could also be turned into some very powerful song lyrics for some country and hip-hop songs.

HERE ARE SOME MORE GREAT POEMS YOU'LL GET FOR THAT DOLLAR:

E) "SALES CALLS"

Sales Calls is a never-ending poem about making sales calls and this poem could also be turned into a song.
F) AND NOW...FOR A MASTERPIECE THAT'S DESIGNED (...AND PERHAPS, DESTINED) TO BECOME A GREAT SONG AND A GREAT MUSIC VIDEO...a poem called "SHE FUNKS LIKE AN AEROBICS INSTRUCTOR-2-3-4"

(You get the picture...read the poem. It's sexy, funny, lewd and crude and it will make a great music video, too.)

BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE...

There are many more great poems in this book, many of them perfect for "Bad Poetry Day," and several more that could also be turned into song lyrics. You can see more about it on Amazon, and you can also call the author, Robert Barrows, at 650-344-4405.


SO, HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO READ AND WRITE ABOUT FOR BAD POETRY DAY?

It's coming very soon, August 18th, so there is still plenty of time to download a book called "Crazy Robert's Poems and Potential Song Lyrics" and see if it lives up to your expectations of bad poetry or even good poetry.

"AND...IF YOU ARE A ROCK STAR OR A MUSIC PUBLISHER OR PRODUCER...and if you would like to talk about acquiring the rights to some of these poems to turn them into your next big hits, please give me a call and let's do some business, says Barrows. "The book is definitely worth the dollar to take a look at all these great potential song lyrics."
