This Buds For You

-This buds for you!-
-It takes one to know one!-
-I know you are, but what am I?-

A second hand, on my stopwatch, going nowhere!
You are a joker, a smoker, a midnight stroker  
<-------How, about that, Steve Miller song

I'm not here to talk about the way you comment a poem
That's not how I roll, now listen, and listen well, 

I don't care, about them words you speak
A whining sheep, every time you don't score
Crying behind close doors, 
Boo-Who, I did not place high in so-and-so's contest
Gosh&dammit, not everyone's on a quest
Blogging, about the day, your poem got demoted to nonsense
Trying to comment relentlessly, 
You can't top, a mountain that has no setup

I'd rather leave a copy paste comment, 
"than being fake as fake can be"
At least, my copy paste was a song, 
in which welcome the new poets on
Treating, everyone with love and security
Your invites, are cold and force, to you it's not about community
No motion, to your notion, simple, and disgusting

I don't know why you think, we are competing, 
Long ago, I left you bleeding, no reason to be defeating
Your paranoia, has you thinking, it's all about the points,
It's getting old and boring,
You cry babies are nothing more than jokes and hypocrites
Hey you, this ain't dominoes, we done passed every Jo-Jo
When, I have time I sit here for fun, my trigger finger on the gun

Reading, commenting, until my day is done
You think, because someone, left a copy paste 
That your poem was not read,
Perhaps, it was not understood, or enjoyed
Or, a welcome to the neighborhood
A nice smile, from me to you
Nice poem, You Rock!
So What! ---- WOW!

This Bud's for you
I think it's time for you to GET A LIFE!
Be glad someone took their time, in checking you out twice
Not, everyone on this site, is full of bull-shit
The smallest words, are more likely to be legit 
I don't need and expensive comment, 
I don't want to be impress, on who left the best comment
Please do not make love to my poem!

A nice pat on my back will do, 
Now that my friend, puts a smile on my face
To know you care, to know you were there:)

Peace Out,

    SKAT, Good writing here!! It's good to see the other point of view. why didn't you enter it in the comment contest? I think both sides have legitimate arguments. Of course the phony comments are not better in my opinion than a copy/paste and more complaints should be made about the phonies because they abound here, that is for sure!!! I commend you for your community building. There are lots of newbies who would never get a comment at all without copy/paste. I sure don't have time to read all!!

    An enjoyable treat!

    Wow, SKAT, really puts my new soupy journey into perspective! I love the fun in your poem - the difference between judgmental (which you're not) and discerning (which you are). Love it. Daniel

    I really like this poem SKAT. It is done so well. The narrative certainly heightens the reader's interest. Enjoyed it immensely. Cheers, Gary

    "This Bud's For You", I like the title, very original, it reminds me of a t-shirt I once saw on a big woman, the slogan said, "THIS BUTTS FOR YOU" on the front, "THE KING OF REARS" on the back! ;))) Anyway Skat, this was a pretty good "SLAM PIECE", don't know who it's about, but I really enjoyed reading! In the old days, I was considered the King of Slams by many online, you've inspired me, I need to write one again, just for old times sake! Thanks, Robert, Poetry Soup ~poetofpoets~ ;)))

    Wow, I don't know what the comment said or whose it was, but you really let'em have it. I don't think that I would've thought to put that into a poem, but you summed up your feelings about it, rather nicely. Welcome back; you've been missed.

    Nice take Skat. Resemblance is mirroring another excellent write. You welcome me to Soup when I joined on January 31, 2014. Therefore, you are alright. Sending a hug and a smile, Verlena.

    Great "Slam" girl!

    Wow a masterful write SKAT. Why long time no see my dear friend! U, Linda n Anne Lise welcomed me I can never forget my early days at soup! Then u vanished ??
  1. Date: 8/28/2014 10:44:00 AM

    I am SO happy to see your return ! Why do I think this poem echoes the thoughts in my own head ? it seems to be a mirror of sorts, reflecting my insecurities. As a poet, that kind of energy...that kind of sensitivity can be channeled into creativity. Keep your finger on the trigger, it keeps us on our toes ! Love and Light !--Keith

    Hi Skat, It is so very nice to see you here. This is a very strong piece. I have not had my coffee yet. Now I really....really need it. I love it when you fight the good fight. Keep up the good work. Have a great day. Take care. Earl

    I was here, I care.. And you deserve that pat on the back. I won't say nice poem, you rock, or WOW.. but I will say your clever write was masterful and you've been missed Skat. Also, without you, Linda, and Anna-Lise welcoming me my first night I probably never would have engaged.. Many thanks!!
  1. Date: 8/27/2014 11:10:00 PM

    I remember well those that first welcomed me and all of them are great poets in my opinion. You and PD both were a huge part of my becoming a member here. Your ink does ever so fly, you write with truth not a bolded lie just sing it out , telling it like it rips leaving others to those power trips..
  1. Date: 8/27/2014 9:46:00 PM

    now double check that one and make sure it's on the FAVES HOMEY!~ If it ain't, I don't know what to tell ya, Cus I aint high enough to be forgetting like that! peace:)~JOEY
  1. Date: 8/27/2014 9:43:00 PM

    Now that's better, LIke I said, NEVER QUIT WRITING! This writing thing is a gift girl, Now you both are back! I LOVE IT! I'm all for a diss track too...I will put this one on my favorites list too, AND this time I promise not to forget! I also told you, I'm an idiot, but don't pull no funnies about people's Creations! Good to see you back in the phone booth SUPER GIRL! I don't know how u keep up on here, I tried it and got burnt out quick! THanks for YOUR NON copy paste CommenTS! :) much LuV7up

    By the way I wanted to let you know my friend 17 poems for Halloween, evil has nothing on me girl, I just hope the soupers see my evil and dark vision lol cheri
  1. Date: 8/27/2014 8:26:00 PM

    Skat loved this right on the button girl, don't lie to me tell in the truth and don't make it flowery comments or make lovey dovy fluffy stuffy instead tell me what you think bang on the target. This one I hopes win because it is the truth, if I could vote you'd have it no doubt. By the way I saw the same special on the Moai, great show yes. cheri
