Poetics and Poetry Discussion

I'm new here and haven't participated in the forums, but if what I've seen is any indication, I'm not sure how long I'll stay. I love the fact that I can read so much classic poetry, but the egos in this place are amazingly oversized compared to the talent I've seen from some of the 'troublemakers'. I get the humorous image of poets facing off like in West Side Story, snapping their fingers in time with the music. Ridiculous.

Quiet in the forum
Could everyone in fact
Let's see...midnight or later
but only dinnertime in
Are the peace negotiations on hold
Based on past experience
I've often found

You 'neither condone nor condemn her views'.
I invite you to re-read them, perhaps you will then want to see her other, previous e-mails to me which are equally disgraceful.
As long as people sit on the fence and watch what others do, in this case Bizzaro, previously england I for one remain unimpressed.
I think there is no point in any further discussions as I see no way for a future which allows people (and I use the word incongruously) like that to shoot off her mouth at will.
There can be no goodwill in this clime and I am fully cognisant of the fact that you as one person can neither speak for nor keep unruly ones in check.
If you stick with your assessment of her statement then I am afraid I will do my own thing and just ask to be left alone.
I am not opposed to peace, being a peace-loving person but the word juvenile and the wishy-washy stand that many people take are a big turn off for me.
I have just re-read the 'poem' by Bizzare and find it offensive, racially incorrect and of rather poor quality. It contains as substance many spelling errors, countless lies as does her comment tonight in this forum.
Feel free to associate with people like that. They are not my kind of people.

His Homeynence observes (with most delight)
the peace negotiations between the warring parties
He empirically believes
Placing heart on sleeve
In no way deceives
Louts and thieves
And should succeed
Post haste indeed
Through wiser creed
Which plants the seed
Lay down your swords and raise your pens
And show the proletarians
The sheep that follow fools blindly
To treat his brother most kindly

Has this place always been so juvenile? I can't believe the kind of arguments that go back and forth here on a regular basis. Also, what's with people dropping in to give a poem a 1 without a comment to back it up? I like storing my work here, so I'm not concerned about the numbers, but some of this is ridiculous. Just my two cent impression thus far.

Mark, I have skipped the unhelpful comments before yours and think that there may be hope.
I remind you that I only sent you a nasty comment (filth, not turd I believe) AFTER you had commmented in a nasty manner on mine.
I am still not clear about Bizzaro, would you clarify this please.
P.S.: If I am an antisemite then the Pope was an atheist.
I do however reserve the right to point out certain characteristics in ethnic groups like Germans eating Sauerkraut and Aussie liking vegemite. Even though people with an agenda waiting to be used may see this as stereotyping and racist.

...and read 'Bizarri's' comments and those by Peewee and to Jean-Francois.... If you can write as well as this, Herbert, why not reveal your talent?
