I am bored with Poetrysoup

I am bored with Poetrysoup

Premier Poetry website rekindled my poetic talent 
Veterans loved my work and inspired to showcase talent
But soon got entangled in Members Contest
Contests more of mutual admiration club than talent hunt
One Premium Member placing other high on winners list
Ordinary Members often accomodated below Glory list      

Poetrysoup Members Contest rules needs revision
Premium Membership based on fees not on merits and contribution   
Novice at times get chance to judge veteran 
And post three poems in Poetrysoup Contest tilting fair play condition
Rules need revision, Premium Membership should be criteria driven
Either based on 25 Top Ten wins or upon posting of 150 poems  
Top 50 of Poetrysoup Contest should conduct contests and groom 

Though bored yet good platform of poetic expression is Poetrysoup  


By Hitendra Mehta
April 2011

Placed 7th in Members Contest - I am bored with______ by Linda Marie 


P.S - Its not intended to offend the Premium Members. Few of them have 
really supported me and loved my visuals and flow. The idea is to make
this platform more stronger and meritorious to groom real talent.
Winning Top Ten and accumulating marks is okay but ultimate gratification
lies in showcasing the visuals with seamless flow of theme and packaging
same in adorable poetic forms.

Ventured this caustic one hoping that it will bring about positive changes.

    Perhaps it would help to realize that Premium Members are ONLY those persons who have credit cards AND can afford to pay the fee. Paying a fee to have a "symbol" next to your name and to be able to run contests and post blogs has nothing to do with whether the person is a good poet and/or has leadership/teaching qualities. This is why I wish poetry sites did not put stars, crowns, etc, and label members as "premium" or whatever, as it falsely indicates they are superior poets. No, they are just someone with a credit card and can afford the fee. I have no objection to paid memberships and extra perks but there should be no indication they have paid a fee, as that "indication", whatever symbol is used, is mistaken for superiority. In other words, the only difference between Premium Members and regular ones is the Premium Members have credit cards. There is no other way to pay, and if there were, it's still only an indication of being able to afford the fee.

    Congratulations on your win! Some of it's a catch 22. How can you get to have 25 wins to become a premium member if only premium members are getting the wins? I have just learned to accept that every member is subjective and my idea of what's good and their ideas of what's good aren't always going to match. Unfortunately, it may take us dying for them to appreciate our work!

    congratulations on your win, Hitendra.I see you inspired a lot of comments with this one. And I am sure you saw the big blog controversey! I think it is a thing that will never be resolved as long as we do not have blind judging.

    Very good, clever stuff. Impressed at how you conveyed an honest message in an inoffensive way. Shouldn't poets be commentators, too?

    Congratulations, Hitendra. I guess the sponsor took no offense and I no none was intended. Still, Diane Locksley's "I am bored with egos" is apparently the only poem that didn't place in this contest. You know how much I enjoyed the message in your great poem. Congratulations on your win, Love, Carolyn

    Oh, Hitendra!You're hurt.being new here,don't know the rest.but what i realized after motherhood and all,one feels so good having girl friends love them and receive their affection..and girls will always remain girls at heart,even when they're women.instant connect, thoughts tastes also match and the rest follows. Nonetheless yours is a wonderful, creative write. many Congrats on your win.if i sound motherly ,think of this as professional hazard :) cheers and regards,gautami

    Hurrah! You describe the contest problems perfectly Hitendra. Carolyn had suggested I read this poem after she read mine on being bored with egos. You and I are thinking alike. The jig is up PMs. We know a few of you only pick your friends as winners. Hope you'll check out my poem on this subject Hitendra. Together we are making a statement. I'm so glad I read this. You made my day! Best to you, Diane (a fave for me also)

    Hitendra, just want you to know I've been asking folks to take a look at this and they all seem to agree with what you said. We are missing the intent of writing better poetry when we become so absorbed in contests. Blessings to you for having the courage to speak out. Love, Carolyn
