bfont color=#000000Today's Great Undead Poets/font/b


Today’s great undead poets,
awash in the Internet sea,
seek to fill the void of sensible emptiness
of our cyberspace world.
Following the heroic tradition of Man,
these daring individuals look to gain acceptance
through the expression of concepts.
Mirroring the virility and vitality of Life,
in defiance of critical naysayers,
the blankness of virtual paper
is scribbled upon with hurt, hope and ideals.
Writing styles and topics,
whether expressed in romanticized language
or the coarseness of profanity,
are brilliantly reflected in individualized glory
and authors bask in the personal satisfaction of achievement.
In the ever continuing flow of poetic thought,
today’s great undead poets
find treasures in the discovery of self.

    Great poem, but that ain't me then, cus I am still looking for myself! lol A brilliant read, thanks for referring me to it Joseph, splendid work which gives me the grace to carry on despite the hecklers and the green with envy! rofl

    Someone nice told me I have so much trouble with men because of my success! lol Which is ironic as I have not made any money, I could not consider this as success, until now. I said to my son today, 'it must be inconvenient having a poet as a mum? 'and he said 'yes! you don't make any money', and I said, 'Well I will, but not lots until after I'm dead' and he said, 'Well don't be a poet then! ' and I said, 'Got no choice son, it is just the way it is! ' And it is. I love being a poet even an illiterate average poor one! lol Gorgeous arse though! Tai (Report) Reply

    Terrific poem, Joe. Nicely phrased, indeed. However, I think few of us, whether great or not great, find much solace from the small rafts like PH which purportedly prevent us from drowning in the Internet Sea in which we are, as you say, awash. (Report) Reply

    A very beautiful tribute. True poets give themselves away in words and words are forever.
