    What else are you going to dare me to post, Plumface? As you can see I have no shame in posting my poetry.
    Now I would like to ask Sherrie von Gonzalez to post her Tribute To Momma, and for Monty the Mule to post his Tribute to Alan Prell.
    Please, I would love a good laugh.

    A long, long time ago any poet was considered as a spokesman or as mouthpiece for his folks or for his tribe. Poetry is very important in conveying certain messages at anytime. We can, through writing poetry, conveying a lot of pretty messages to different people global. Thanks.

    Here is a list of people who I believe are unbiased when critiquing:

    - Mike Acker
    - Jefferson Carter
    - Peter Stavropolous
    - Jimm Hogg
    - Mandolyn
    - Dan Reynolds
    - John Westlake(yes, hard to believe)
    - Gulsher John
    - Jim Crawford
    - Adam Snow
    - did I mention Mike Acker?
    - to anyone else I may have missed, please come forward!

    So, if you are not on the above list, I consider you to be an immature individual who cannot suspend his or her personal feelings about a poet while critiquing his or her poem. The three most notorious, and childish individuals on here are Monty The Mule and his sidekick The Dogg(aka Professor Plum) , and their streaker, Sherrie Von Gonzalez Kolb.

    I have just spent twenty minutes laughing my arse off. Why?what was so funny?I've been pressing the play button on the videos attached to my poems. The poor pronunciation, inflection and emotion make my funny odes even funnier. the female voice also adds to the fray. LMFAO.

    You should never be ashamed of poetry, even if it's bad, at least you're expressing what you're feeling. Even if the words are a bit shallow, it's the emotions that gives it power. That is poetry.

      Actually, if your poetry is bad, you should be ashamed of it and NOT post it anywhere. Poetry is an art form, not a sewer for emotional spewings.
