Rebels Ban Erasers
Come chew the cud with me!
The worst is yet to be,
The least of lines, for which felt tips were made:
Your tomes take from his hand
Who saith, “Writers I panned!”
You’re clever’r by half; trounce Gurus: say all, be not afraid!
(apologies to Robert Browning)

NB: I wasn’t happy with “Editors” – too many syllables. “Critics” had one fewer, but “Gurus” has the ‘G” going for it, too (and my gripe is with them, anyway). Inspiration, Thy Name is … a Cliché!
