Always Abstain

Always Abstain Are you a down-hearted poet with no spirit? Tell Poetry Soup so all they can hear it What I like about them and is so neat To no one else will they ever repeat. Center of attention is position you maintain On a clear day or possibly out in the rain Makes no difference what poems you prefer With Poetry Soup, lifetime they will endure. Have not found any calories in food for thought And even though I might be bragging a lot Hope you understand this pure and plain From criticism, Poetry Soup will always abstain.

We are all good in our own way. How about a Battle of the Poems. When you write one, I respond to it under my name. That should prove to be quite interesting. I just had a horrible thought. Just because we like rhyming poetry how would you like to be called a rapper like Mimenem which probably should be enema in the way that it all sounds?
