Below is the poem of the day entitled Loud grunting which was written by poet Poet Destroyer A .

Loud grunting

(Innuendo -- Pigs)

All around are sticks and stone
Feel God's loving arms around you
-----At last, I am redeemed-----

A feast of my soul, you shall receive
A cake for dinner, I made out of stones
Ratchet pigs fill their dirty mouths, 
Consuming my soul, sipping on champagne

At peace with myself, brushing off the walls
Nevertheless, tonight they speak in tongues
-I strain my ears to listen;
While pettitoes approach my page
I hear the squeals, I hear the chit chat
from he/she that wears no shame.
Am I she, the evil one?
The one you penned -
Under the influence of manipulation
Trying to stifle my voice of beauty
No matter, I am crazy, a dreamer
Never claim to be THE INNOCENT, 
The Poet Destroyer!!! 

I ignore the walls when they speak
Nevertheless, tonight they have eyes
They watch my every move
A trotters dance, of togetherness
Forgetting the reason we are here
I will win and conquer my privacy

You can't destroy what you can't see
I am the glory of my day
I am God's pet!!!
A Lamb, wearing white
To others a wolf in disguise
Spitting slithers, swear 
I am the Devil's Advocate
I marvel how they snort at night
Today I will crash the sore whispering party
You! My friend, no longer exist
You are naught more than cobwebs
You will dream about me, write about me
I will give you ammo, then read it from you.
I will show you what a demon is!
Like the light and envy of every moon
I shall ask my reflection and remove
the residue from hogging lips.

I will watch you urbane the truth
The heat and lust I conquer from you
A font with no reflection, dating apples
Heading away from its own advice
A hard task from its quill, enjoying leftovers
Pinpointing fingers among shallow dreams
It's sickening to see pigs pat each others back
Feeding on my demonic words
Convoying innuendos in my bearing
Now it's my turn, to turn the roaster on

With no interest in removing muddy sheets
I shall smile and walk away
In - joy - my heart beats and smiles
Knowing, I made you look  --- AGAIN!!!

    This reminds me of those days when I was a newbie...someone issued a challenge to write slams and I enjoyed reading the fun, good-natured writes in response...great self-slam, Linda. Congrats on POTD

    From God's pet lamb to a demon and everything in between. I won't even pretend to know what this is about but kudos for creativity

    Your ratchet pigs sipping on champagne fits my guilty speculation of the secret me inventing excuse for being totally demented. Is everyone this way or is it just me. Oh, shit! I hope everybody is this way. You be cool. You be real. Love ya, daver

    You're very talented. Good for you this was really well done. Congrats!

    You have such an uncanny way of connecting with your readers before, during, and after the reading is done! Deserving piece for poem of the day, congrats my friend!

    as my fate advances each date I will not sit and wait while I anticipate the arrival of something great because I am number eight understanding that I am my worst enemy if I start to hate....very compelling pd....;)

    You, dear Linda are a genius of creative writing. You always ignite the senses. I just love your style. No one does it better. Sincerely, Elaine

    The title first caught my notice, the poet's note drew me in. What I found was an AMAZING and wonderful write. Good work

    Your poet's note increased my curiosity to what the content of the poem is and after reading it carefully and slowly on two occasions, I find nothing other than an excellent piece well crafted from an unreachable inspiration. This is indeed lovely and if anyone writes something negative here it is only because their minds are blind to a poetess' yearnings. Thumbs up Lindsy!

    Very well done. Grats on poem of the day.

  1. Date: 2/11/2016 6:19:00 AM

    No one would ever accuse you of being ordinary. You are a poet, of that there is no doubt. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece, glad to look again and again and again.

  1. Date: 2/10/2016 10:47:00 PM

    Quite a striking poem here! Yes, you made me look again! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    An absorbing, courageous study in unfiltered self-analysis in which astonishing imagery cracks the constraints of conventionality. What PA reveals stretches the imagination to conceive that which she doesn't reveal. Poetic genius on display here.

    Linda wanted to let you know posted the coach poem, tonight and am working on the dallas cowboys finish it after work tomorrow, almost done sis, but have to get up earily, you won't be disappointed lol, nite for now cheri

    nice rhyme. HC

  1. Date: 2/10/2016 2:23:00 PM

    A pretty good slam, using a punching bag with disciplined and self-confident jabs. It's said that attack is the best defense! Now look in the mirror and high5 the girl grinning at you:) hugs // paul [...telemundo?...sounds Spanish]

    Nothing to comment but simply i say genius. To reduce depression i enjoy myself by slamming myself. Loved always my lovely *friend,bl

    Fueling in the stove gives more heat The warmer and more comfortable we get. Stoke your stove with more wood and curl up with your warm comforter, with your quill and parchment . A 7 dear friend

    PD, your style is undeniable and I sure appreciate you as a person who is very creative. Remember when we actually did a few collaborations together. you can meld yourself to many forms!! Very interesting and weird images here, that I enjoyed.

    Feels like great stream of consciousness. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

    Hi David, Yes, it's better to get things off the chest. In no way, am I disagreeing to not being. Hugs.........Linda
