There Was a Pregnant Pause Before He Said "OK"

Dear Mike,

Thank you for submitting a poem.  It was very very very very very clever.  And your vocabulary is really off-the-charts.  You even used the word 'gravid' that this editor felt compelled to look up.  Kudos.

Despite the sense of wild success presaged in the previous paragraph, we must let you know: your submission has been rejected.  You should know better than to be so clever.  It's not good for you.

Best regards,

Caleb Emmons, PhD
