    the empire is finished brits get a life, go back to your little hole in the earth
    your poetry is dead, it died in the battle for independance, which was lost by you

    I would like to say that I have found Jerry Hughes to be one of the most kind hearted people on this site. There are very few people that are as concerned with people and the world we live in the way Mr. Hughes has shown. I for one, would be very sad to see him leave this site. I just thought he should know that. Sincerely, Mary

      Thank you, Mary, for that well-deserved and eloquent statement. Jerry has been sadly under-rated by - who? the envious? I hope he reconsiders.

    Mr Saywell, I wouldn't send a book of your poems to my worst enemy let alone a 'friend'. Congratulations. In 900-odd pointless poems you've achieved nothing that hasn't already been done in a much better way and annoyed a lot of nice people into the bargain.

    Lenchen Elf, Paul England, Mark Fry, OJ, Jerry Hughes and more besides: all walked away in disgust at the relentless bullying of you and your pal Neurlich who have just about eaten this once-great site up between yourselves. But be clear on one thing: you bitter pea-brained men aren't going to win through.

    If you are a true poet you must take all sorts of abuse and keep writing
    for if you truly love your art you must do this in order to satisfy your desire to write, to run away from a little bit of pressure is not very proffesional
    for if you dont believe in yourself who else is going to believe in you

    Dear Alan...I'm sorry you couldn't see it.
    Jerry Hughes had to be one of the finest poets on this website. We were lucky to have him here...and he was so accesable to all of us....Jerry Hughes is a poet with a rare refined ability to use simple language that manages to touch the fiberous core of our beings....and it is my feeling that...He will most likely, go down as one of Australia's finest Poets in the 21st century.

    does anyone know anything about the World War 1 Poet Rupert Brooke. Or for that matter Robert Graves?

      Scott, They're both well documented. phone the Library of the Imperial War Museum in London if you can afford it! Or is there an Australian equivalent? There are now several books on WW1 poets, also ... more
