Maybe you were foaming at the mouth
Brain dead from reading so many poems now
That one more poem, my poem, was just too much
For you, depleted of original thought, to touch
And so you succumbed to the Horror I see
The “Great Work!” comment you left for me 

I can only hope that in your stupor
You didn’t realize your false sounding blooper
Because I would hate to think that your message was Fluff
To stroke my ego, or because you couldn’t scrounge up
Even one nice thing to say 
About my writing today 

The question remains, haunting my brain:
Did you honestly like it and just take the short cut,
Or did you pump me up with a load of fluff?

Received 1st place in Carol's "Fluff" contest

    Hello, Susan;-) I see you won first place in my contest with your fluff poem. I remember why! I super enjoyed this poem. Your bottom question was amazing. Can you imagine being pumped with a load of fluff by everyone! As if it exist, that is the beauty of fluff it can be anything and come from anyone. I'm enjoyed my interpretation on your win. Nathan, is always telling me how good my work is. lots of BS~ coming from him. I liked the first second third and forth time i read this poem. xox~PD

    I think you have put in words what many of us question silently and to which at some time or another we can all plead guilty. This is a "Great Work". Really!!

    I love the message in this outstanding piece! I too, tire of just a bit of fluff, sort of seems like a piece wasn't read at all. Well said, Susan!
