A Combined Poem

A Combined Poem

If I am limited to ten poems a day
I'm sure there must be a way 
To write all my poems until done
And will combine them all into one.

Poems are perfect not wanting to waste
With a new one each day I am faced
To write which are so very pleasing
As volume and velocity are increasing.

My poem amount has become huge
And hope to remove all the subterfuge 
Which on occasion is worth repeating
So successfully obstacles can be meeting.

Each morning to wrote poems cannot wait
There is no doubt they will become great
And vital as part of a poetry recital
Poet Laureate some day will be my title.

Can Always Trust

People at Poetry Soup can always trust
To do there is something that I must
Send all my poems in emails to you
So can read them through and through.

There is a quadrain and a quatrain 
And iambic hexameter which should remain
Central subject in my poetic philosophy
Affecting all of the verbage and its viscosity.

What I am saying is smoothly flowing
And a great temptation now is growing
From time I had first gotten out of bed
After morning prayer to God I just said.

I'm like a lover of the Lord who was led
By all of God's food I was recently fed
Which would be things making me willing
To write poems and purpose be fulfilling.

For Themselves Did Create

Were friends but still often fought
A lot and often could get caught
When all our dander up was raising
Then ended up applauding and praising.
To a movie show we started to go
Not knowing what on us would bestow
Stories  about people being belligerent
And always fighting wherever they went.

Believe all of this wanted to refuse
That Tolkien anyone would abuse
And maybe someone like you and me
Will never hurt or have harmed a flew.

But still we watched battles going on
After that someplace then had gone
Which is reason I seem to understand
Why they ended up creating a Disneyland.

    Good way to put out more poems James but hard to concentrate on as a reader. By the time you're on the last you forget the first. Sometimes it's hard concentrating on one poem at a time. The question is, do you just want to get your poetry in here quickly or do you want people to read and enjoy each poem? I'm not trying to criticize you because I respect you to much, I just would like to understand this better.
