Letter to Chaucer

Hey Geoff!  I got your book.  It’s pretty good.

I mean it made me laugh and everything,

but aren’t you worried that the thought police

will find you’re not politically correct?

I know you’ve got that maistrie thing

the Wife of Bath is all concerned about,

but there’s Griselda too.  I mean, come on.

I can’t believe you’re serious with her

and that misogynist she’s married to.

Don’t get me wrong.  I think that you’re the best.

It’s just you make me question who I am,

and if I’m just another sexist pig.

Or possibly, I hope, Griselda knows

what’s going on and is the master there.

I guess it doesn’t matter.  After all

I’ll keep on reading you no matter what.

And if you wouldn’t mind, when you’re around,

I wonder, could I get your autograph?
