Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Open Letter to Devin, Steve, and Brandy
 


Devin, I remember.

I was here then, and I remember it well,
The uncertainty and fear
As we confused poets not only mourned the death
Of our beloved Albert,
But the possible demise
Of his precious dream.

I remember us saying it would take
An out and out miracle
For our Starlite to survive.

And you, dear Devin,
YOU WERE OUR MIRACLE.

Oh, you weren’t our Albert.
Not by a long shot.
But you were the one who breathed life
Into a dying site.

And for that, dear friend,
We owe you big time.

And now, I see you graciously turning the reins
Over to (as you say) a new generation.
Thank you doesn’t even begin to describe
Our debt of gratitude.

And now…
We roll out the red carpet for our new captain.

Steve, welcome.
I’ve saved your seat at the head of the table,
And I’ve got the coffee pot on.
And we poets anxiously await to see what comes next,
As you put your own stamp on Starlite.
I’m sure all your ideas will bring new and exciting
Avenues for us to explore.

But just a word of warning, my friend,
There are those of us who find change
Just a wee bit difficult.
It’s not our fault, we were born that way. (He He.)

So all I’m saying Steve, is,
Please. Be gentle with us.
Okay?
And remember,
A little patience goes a long, long way.

Brandy, thank you for taking on an administrative role.
But I wonder if you know exactly what you’re taking on???
I hope you have time, more time, and then a lot more time
To devote to what will seem, at times, like a thankless task.
But be assured, we will assist you in any way we can.
And if it seems like at times we are out of line,
A gentle nudge from you
And a lot of understanding
Will shape us right back up.

And now, Starlite poets,
The ball is in our court.
Devin is doing all he can to make this transition effortless,
Teaching Steve about Starlite's famous little quirks.

Could we do no less?

Let’s all join hands
And Rejoice,
That this, Albert’s dream
IS STILL ALIVE.

BECAUSE OUR STARLITE ROCKS!!!!
