    Linda, you are a POET. Please leave these people to their own devices.
    You are so far above them, not only because they are unable to produce anything of value but for other, self-explanatory reasons as well.
    It is probably wise to ignore them although I do admire the spirit that you are showing, it signals so much superior intelligence that it must be painful to them.

    Just have a look, if you want to have some fun, at the ratings in the stst section.

    Best wishes,
    Herbert
    P.S.: I will stand firm and I can assure you right now that these people will not be on P/H in a very short time.

    PH, this Rather Ancient Brit has offered an opinion on the Royal Dysfunctional Family's celebration ode, on the 'Writing' site...

    I will check out the poem - though I think Andrew Motion writes at his best when he is not forced into commenting on royal events.

    In the “Writing Poetry” forum, I posted the poem written by Britain’s Poet Laureate to commemorate the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. Would be interested in comments on it (particularly from Brits) .

    Paul,
    I think you are making it pretty clear you say what you want! My point of view is equally valid to yours - so you will not tell me to shut up. Again, you demonstrate you cannot enter into a discussion without getting mad. A discussion is just that - dictionary definition is: - 'to talk something over'
    not try to shout others down.

    Paul,
    You are still not understanding what I am trying to say - anyone making remarks about someone's nationality is not entering into the spirit of poetry - so I would think the best thing would be to ignore them! ! As I said this is not what poetry is about. P.S I'm more of a coffee drinker actually
