poetry hound, thanks for the write up about my ripper yarn, that was a great yarn you wrote, in trying to tell me in more ways than one that the poem was crap
I wrote that in a school essay years ago. the only LINES changed were the last two. may be my line of writing has not made a hit with all you critic's, but their are certain people who do like it, people who read (Dogeral) I think thats the way you spell it. I surpose people like you canot come to terms with this, and the change from classic poetry, well I can, why do'nt you ever say anything good about people, Oh by the way I would like to read some of your poetry Also I am not interested in how much money my country had made out of the 'Ripper' I also have another interest true crime, I have a lot more crime poems but seeing that my poem did not wet your appetite then they can stay in the loft with all the rest of the junk.

    Sorry if I offended you. I didn't mean to. I thought you wanted to hear criticism. So I told you the truth, at least as I see it. Someone else may see it differently and that's fine. No need to get upset about it. As for saying good things about poems, I do it all the time.
