The Plea of a Bookworm By: Margaret Laupp

Gimme a bold hero to believe in

And a twisted villain trying to get even


Gimme a new world to explore

Besieged by a plague or maybe a war


Gimme a midnight murder most foul…

…a serial killer on the prowl?


Gimme a ship in the vacuum of space

Uncovering a strange, new alien race


Gimme a romance to last the ages

Or at least a couple hundred pages


Gimme the send-off to times of old

Let me witness history unfold


Gimme a new life to live for a day

I’ve done it before and I know the way


Gimme the change to imagine, to feel

Gimme the fiction and I’ll make it real
