Grapes I'd Rather

I just got through viewing
The "Hot New Poems List"
With the names of those I know
and some I guessed I've missed

I breezed right though the first five
Then, right straight down to ten
and new there'd be no need
To ever check, that high again

Then, Flying though the twenties
Perhaps, the thirties I would place
Even in the forties
would be a saving grace

Perhaps the Soup was careless
For sure they are mistaken
Not every poem I have written
'till now, could be forsaken

Then, there were the sixties
and the seventies, AGAIN !
You'd think between lines they,
could s-w-eeeeeze my poem in

The eighties saw no hope
The nineties were amiss
You'd think that I'd be sad
Or just a little pissed

But I'll just keep on trying
'Cause, you can never tell
But, the truth is that I'm Happy
to see my friends all doing well

I want to especially Congratulate my friend and yours
Jan Alison for making the Top of the list
"Not bad, for a girl that writes "Pooh" eh........ Lol

    Oh Jerry this is marvelous news ... not only POTD but you are in at #39 in the best new poems list:-):-) The 'collaboration' is still top of the list - it is in no way a BEST' poem just popular as I guess it will have been favourited by many of the people who contributed to it. I hope soup change the name from 'best' to current trending or something like that:-) hugs Jan xxx

    At least you can take solace in POTD honors, or do you suppose that was politically contrived?...

    Jerry, with your sense of humor you have to join us in an offering of your own. Jan is being humble and sweet by sharing her honor with all who wrote for the collaboration. Please DO join in.

    Oh Jerry I had to smile at your lovely comment - please join in the collaboration I am still putting poems up when they are received - the first place is shared by all of those who wrote follow on poems to my at the footbridge limerick - i was merely the catalyst there are many to share the honour:-) the new list is MUCH fairer as it was totally monopolised by a few names and it was a bit of a joke when one person had 40 plus poems on there at one time:-( hugs jan xx
