Poetic Predators

She wolf of the poetic world who run
and struggle to maintain her dignity 

Our words, our dreams are falling to pieces 
By, the predators of this time period 
We are the prey for  the fearful ones 
Who scrolls and display rude comments? 

Deep within as you lament over our poems 
 we rise up stronger than ever
Composing rhyme, lyric and prose 
Unlike your hatred about likes and dislikes 
Narrative poems portrays the truth 
We shine, we meddled, and somehow, we win 
We are stronger; death with dignity is a poet emblems 

Pieces of our past anthology anguish you 
Your Savage behavior bites you each time; 
We compose; you pursue 
We are the death of your souls 

Mr. Sleepless White Nights 
Your predators, you editors
Are you addicted to your inner critic
We have our rights 
You confounded wretch night stalkers.

    In some circles this would be labeled courageous.... I stand in agreement with everything you say. Those who see fault in others' efforts should first look in the mirror. Some people must attempt to destroy others' creative spirit. My advice to those attacked is "Never let 'em see ya sweat"....... Great write...... Jake

    A bold and amazing write on the acts and deeds of the poetic predators. They ruthlessly massacre creativity that is for sure. Their dominance is short lived. Thanks for your enlightened comment on my Quatrain The Cry of Heart.

The book can be viewed on Look for the title by Mohammad Yamin Iraqi. -Mohd

    Here, it's not a real problem. I dealt with predators and pejorative harassment on a much larger scale when I was a member of a now-defunct poetry site. A few drifters came here, but were eventually ostracized. Good write Annie.
