ARE YOU A FICTION FIEND?

The soft back book collection
Is in danger of extinction
And subject to correction
I think that the annextion
Of sundry tomes of fiction
By those with an addiction
Is considered the objection
To the possible correction
Of this ensuing vexion
And if no one has objection
Let’s unite for the prevention
Of the eclipsion of the section
And start the resurrection
Of the soft back book collection.
