Those who err follow the poets

Hey you there!
Yes you!
Why are you reading this when you could be succeeding?
Doctors of engineeringdo not want you to know this handy trick;
that reading poetry makes you live longer
it just feels like it
and can make you up to five times smarter
when increasing the reading amount by a factor of twenty
and make you irresistible
to catchy pun based advertisements
and even make you more potent
in family games of Scrabble.
You too could be making money through poetry
working in a book binding factory for minimum wage
getting fame and fortune like no other
try naming the poet laureate off the top of your head right now
publishing anthologies for the clamouring masses
just in time for the Renaissance of the Middle Ages
to astound your friends into envy with your vocabulary
at the same level as a seven year old online.
Signup now and don't miss out
before it is too late
or common sense overrules you
this once in a lifetime opportunity
to make an unrepeatable mistake
to become a unparalleled poet
just like everyone else who can rhyme
simply enter your address in reply
for a free unlimited amount of unsolicited spam.
Go ahead, you won't regret it
You will really regret it.

Why not read some fiction instead?

Entry for day 23 of the NaPo competition based on the prompt of "23. Infomercial : Write an hour long segment for television and radio, selling DUP swampland and other hyped up nonsense to the masses." Then again to err is to be human.
