In The Beginning

In the Beginning
 
Before a piece of writing
is published,
 
it is raw rhubarb,
sour to the senses. 
 
Granted, editing
is much easier now
 
than during the
quill and inkwell days
 
when supplies were dear
and research time consuming.
 
But editing is still
more the chore than treat.
 
There will always be a better 
word to be found,
 
a more precise 
image to be described,
 
and a sweeter 
sound of rhyme.
 
I suppose 
God 
wishes
our
useless appendix
was so easily remedied.
 
But then, that work 
took 
a mere seven days.
