Poetry Soup Is Like Oscar Night



Poetry Soup is like Oscar Night With the stars and adulation Poets need this constant praise From folks of every nation! All a bunch of star performers Each in our own little way Presenting a different slant on life With little or lots to say! There's never discrimination here Just joined to have some fun We post a bunch of our latest gems And see what others have done! Most times we get glowing words Of praise for our masterpiece Of course we surely return the favour With a six star rating at least! It gives us sensitive older people A reason to greet every day To go straight to our ole computers And read what people say! Almost nine times out of every ten The reviews will be at least a five You'll walk around the rest of the day Feeling invigorated and so alive! Poetry Soup is like Oscar Night With all the stars and adulation Poets need this constant praise From folks of every nation! © Jack Ellison 2013

    What a great description of how it's like for most of us, here on the Soup! It's hard to express how happy I feel when someone likes what I've written. Though I do admit it's a bit of an addiction! Oh well, at least it's not like smoking or anything... this at least encourages creativity.

    A bit of an "addition" you say! A major addiction for me! How else could I meet and know so many great people from all around this big old world! Methinks my dear wifey would have to hide all the sharp instruments without it! LOL Have a good one my friend!

    You got it Jack - take it away. You are right. This gives us a reason to get up each day. The beauty of poetry is - that we all write different. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    "we all write different"... that's what makes it so much fun, so challenging, so rewarding! Love it... a day without poetry is like a day without sunshine! Big hugs, Jack xoxoxox

    That's it! I'll get the dragon to do poetry... Naw... I'll never get my computer back... And he's sooo into himself, that they'll all be about him... As we all know... I'm WAY more discriminating and classical... LOL... Yea, right! Here... dragon... Here... Dragon! Bet I can get my couch back... Grandpa Trolls been eye'n that couch lately, too... What's with these guys, any way? ... I've got it! I'll move my couch by the lake where I'm always in time out! That should work! THE PERFECT SOLUTION!
