POETRY Response

(This is in response to the Poem
POETRY written by Richard Lamoureux)

I make the most sound but no noise
You'll hear me alright sans my voice.

Richard, look in my face there's no smile
But I won you over standing away many a mile.

Don't I tug at your heart though we haven't met?
You haven't seen any of my magic tricks yet!

Equally at home in a palace or a shanty shack
I have everything I need, nothing more I lack.

Oh, I do fall in; and ya, often fall out of love,
But I am not a cheat, I guess, by Jove!

But here's where we fall apart
A famous person is but a spoiled brat!

What I write, I do not retract or rewrite,
I get called out often, but I know I'm right.

But on one matter you and I do agree
The power of poetry do sets our spirits free!

So here is a poetic challenge for you, Mr. Lamoureux
Pick any of my poems to respond and make me fret or vex!!

    You wanna join in? Threesome will be whole lot of fun! You write a subject from one angle of view, I see it in a totally different perspective. But it has to be taken in a very good spirit. And well, you are a pro! So, it will be a cake walk for you!
