Friday Funday: The Day Jobs of Poets

Happy Friday dear readers! You survived the work week made it to the holiday weekend (assuming you’re in the states; if not, you still made it to the weekend!)!

In honor of the end of the work week, here is a fun little chart that popped up on my Facebook feed last night about famous poets’ day jobs, just so you know that you are not the only one who’s had to get a “real person job” in order to pay the bills.  Unless you’re Herman Melville or Emily Dickinson, that is. I’m not sure the yearly salary for aspiring harpooner or keeper of cats would’ve been all that great…
