Purple Haze

Purple Haze

I wrote some purple prose
Filled it with profanity
Thrusting and grinding
Lust induced insanity

My language was too strong
I was censored and redacted
I had to cut some words
My scenes were too protracted

Here’s what I was left with
The editor’s edition
They say it’s fairly good
But still needs some revision

Once upon a time there was a girl
She ventured out into the world
She met a boy and long story short
He was kind and sweet and just her sort
They went on a date
They had a little fun
Fell in love and got married
Then the story was done

Now there’s a purple haze
Where my words used to be
Next time I’ll choose my editor
More carefully!
