The Poet, Pianist, and the Soups Secret Group

You never see his name anymore, but believe me he's still here.
He open's the soups' door, making it possible for me to write beyond this 
He makes it possible to enter these contests, for it takes away from his own time.
All the postings often get him stressed, and yet he was the first to befriend me
despite the nature of my crime!

See, he's a talented poet as well, but he'll tell you he's more a pianist than anything.
My words may put you under a spell, but his finger's will play a melody on your

But it's no longer about poetry; it's about being down with #%!$:'s secret group!!

    This is a kind tribute to one of these Soup forefathers...sweet. As for a secret group, how come I wasn't invited? I like secrets..they're like gossip stuff. Nobody ever tells me any gossipy things.:( Now you've opened up a can of worms. This seems fishy. Oh well, best to you and yours, Mikki

    Revelations!? That's what you should have titled this, JAM. Lots of info to digest. I'll have to read this again. Love, Annalise
