I usually never write reviews... but the way you made this sound, and the way you pulled me into the story brought me to write this. You said the lines with the perfect tone, almost as tho you were suppose to be the one to read this... Im just amazed

How does this not have any comments?

This is awesome. I'm a big Gaiman fan, so I definitely appreciate this (although I've never read this before (is this from a novel of his, or is it a book of poems or...?). I think the impact of the last lines is supported by the fact that you read the whole thing deadpan, even while the subject matter seems a bit silly at first.

And the way it just ENDS, letting the music fade away and leaving you to your thoughts. As for the poem itself it's certainly unique structurally. It's a very roundabout way of making a simple point that I'm not sure how I feel about (whether I agree with the point itself, or how it was presented, etc.). But I ain't hear to critique the British dude, this is a review of your voice acting. Which is awesome here, the perfect "solemn narrator." And great use of that music too, by the way.

Thanks so much! I'm a big NG fan, too. Didn't know a whole lot about his poetry though ... I was brought to this by a friend who wanted a reading for xmas. The music most certainly helped out A LOT :P Glad you enjoyed it!
