    I like poems that tell a story, especially in in rollicking manner,
    and I am disturbed by the following, and would appreciate

    I've been digging into some old stuff by 
    Browning, et al, and I may have a case
    of plagiarism against the bombastic fellow...

    A work by Leigh Hunt,1784 - 1859,  The Glove
    And The Lions, is the basis for a rather lengthy
    work by Browning,  (The Glove) , who was born in 
    1812 and did not begin to publish until his mid-twenties
    when he wrote a rather lengthy ramble, detailing
    what Leigh Hunt had concisely (and entertainingly)
    already published...

    I am going to look a little further, and if it does
    turn out that Browning scraped the sides of
    Hunt's soup-bowl, then my estimation of the
    much-lauded writer will cease to exist, and
    he will be relegated to the nether-land of other
    writers who take undue credit...

    One such worthless POS that comes to mind
    is Thoreau, who criticized and reviled the very
    system upon which he depended for his own

    IMO, practically any offspring of a diseased
    garbage collector could write great things if
    he did not have to slave and sweat for his
    very existence, having it handed to him by
    foolish hands...

    I likes the great poet Keats and his poetry in such high regards and respects owing to the wonderful life experienced poems which dealt with human woes.

    One of my favorite poets is Lewis Carroll. I first found out about him by watching a short film created by one of my favorite dance crews, The Jabbawockeez. Now the poem Jabbawocky is one of my favorites.

    I will forever be in love with LIPO, I don't know and I could not explain when I have read his poem about the moon, drinking, and himself.
    I love the moon, I love his verses and I love Lipo.
