actually smiled laughed
when a ghost critic voted
my poem 'Simplest Purest

Purposes Of Art' a 1
some cannot realize
beauty in simplicity

inherent in simple thought
to perceive develop ability
to appreciate simple concepts...

thus in pity I swift wrote
a pleasant pure poem about it
'What Flows In Loving Souls'

funny how often
a poem I really like
a critic will not

no need to like
an individual poem
or a specific poet;

lovers of poetry
follow those they likeith
best or lovith best;

if I cooked you a nice steak
with variety veg you do not
either have to like it or eat it...

rather you might leave the meat
choose the veg being a vegetarian?
or prefer some sausage eggs chips

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
