Happy Ending – Ad Poetry


Another in the occasional series of Ad Poetry Fridays.

Perhaps your general agency is right
and the photographer is a genius
His picture of an olive is certainly in focus, and well-lit
It is the epitome of olives, as olives go

It’s too bad that it cost six thousand dollars
and your agency failed to negotiate web rights
Now the photographer wants twice as much
to let us use it online

But no matter
The genius sold his outtakes to iStock
Yesterday we bought his maraschino cherry
for eight bucks
