    Absolutely No way Mr Professor.... for there is far too much sadness and hatred in this Small World. I am against anything negative. Thank you and have a bright and Happy week.

    Let Me Go

    You've got me hanging from a cross.
    For god's sake, let me down!
    I died, now let me go my way.

    Let it go.

    I was a Jew, I am a Jew.
    I was never one of you.

    You've killed my people,
    the ones you claim killed me,
    but you won't let me die.

    Just let me go,

    let me die in peace.
    I am not your god, I never was.
    I was just a Jew, a simple Jew.
    I've never met you,
    yet you won't let my blood run dry.

    Daily, you eat my flesh and drink my blood.
    You've got to let it go. You've got to let me die.
    About my father; I never claimed I was his son.
    I died, now let it go!

    Please, let me go!

    Mike Acker

      The rewrites are working a little. Goes to show, if you work hard, you get results. The guy is dead though, so how is he talking/thinking?(if He is a regular person, like you're saying) I think t ... more

      OK, Frankie boy, go for it. Needed some underbrush cut away. Could still use some work, but generally I am very proud of it.

    Acker is back dangling
    from a cross. He's got
    the Jesus persecution
    complex. He thinks
    he can walk on water.
    He can only pi*s in it.

    I hate that plum professor
    he aint got no juice left
    in him, he is known locally
    as pip squeak, his poems
    are prunes, his wife looks
    like an olive tree in Alaska

    I think I'm going to go ahead and start getting into it with some people on here. SO BORING, lately. Too many 'nice' people, terrible poets, and all around riff-raff. Let's get the old hatred happening again. How about it, people??

    Thanks everybody for all the wonderful messages I just found in my inbox! It's been so long since I visited Poemhunter-I see good changes! I was looking at one of my poems and it began being read outloud to me. Wow, fantastic. Any other changes I'm not aware of yet?I will be able to take a little time now and read some of the poems you have been working on since I've been away! Keep up the good work poets! ! ! I saw you've been reading my works as well. Thank you for that. This is an amazing bunch of writers on this site! Good works from good people. Excellent to see all of you writing good pieces! ! !

    Latest breaking(almost) news form Madonna's fall at the Brits. Apparently she was making a tribute to Michael Jackson, but could only find a leather mitten. She admitted afterwards, " it's hard to justify my glove?"
