Hey PoetrySoup Folks-

I picked "cinqku" because I don't know what form that is, and I'm too lazy to look it up; but if you've ever read any of my poetry you should know I don't want to lead anyone down a particular path, but just that you read into what you want to read into. However, comments are left open to release, and it seems PoetrySoup has an in and an outside crowd. As Groucho Marx once said (maybe a paraphrase) "I wouldn't want to be a member of a club that would want me as a member." So, with my last poem I stated about paying my bill. So I have settled what I owe, but I do leave a big tip, and if you are wise you will follow, Maureen McGreavy is the best TASTE out of this pot. For you bible pushers and preachers, "In the beginning was the WORD." Choose your words wisely. That verbal stone you skipped might just hit you in the ****. My wife has often said, "Why is the F word the first thing out your mouth when you were class scholar and magna cum laude?" F them.

Good morning Jeff. Myself I have always been a fan. I haven’t spent much time here of late so there are many like yourself that I have not visited. That quote from Groucho is a good one. Another from Dr Leo Buscalia, “A single Rose can be my garden, a single person my world.”

Jeff Jeff Jeff. You are one of the valuable independent thinkers on the soup. Keep it up and march to the beat of your own drummer. As always... stay well and enjoy your weekend my friend.

Rolling along... Jeff, I don't know who your other two favourite poets are here, but some of mine, if you want to check them out are Anna Hopper, Anthony Slausin, and Eric Ashford. Anna, every write seems to resonate with me. Anthony, not all, but when they do... And Eric, I can't get in to every write, but he knocks my socks off when I do.

...you get a lot worse before you get better. Crazy I didn't come across this in my research, tho I get it, bouncing a battered brain seems counterintuitive. I believe, Jeff, I just might get my life back.

I finally quit tobacco, so not smoking the weed either like before (wish my mum could have lived to see it legalized). Got a rebounder, mini trampoline, OMG my friend! It is a miracle exercise, within a week my energy is up tenfold (neurofatigue) and the trees and buildings aren't bouncing all over the place when I walk down the street... I had started vestibular exercises...

Where do I begin. Thank you, and I totally get you. I'm all for praise, but please don't send me to hell, I'm really a nice person. I have considered packing it in a few times over that here. I believe in the way if not The Word. Stay, there's always take-out...

Hello Jeff Connelly,my father use to use the F word a lot. I do not like the F word. It is not necessary to say that word when things goes wrong. It is a coarse word used in the wrong way. Have a nice day my friend. Be safe. Enjoy your day my friend.

Jeff, I use to hate when my husband used the same word. I always said, watch your language. He'd just grin. It's a shame if this is going on. I love the members here and all have been very kind. I've been here since 8/28/2014 and I have only had a couple of person that I've seen use digitory remarks, I said my peace then blocked them. I don't deal well with people the states comments I don't believe. Bless you that you are out to help. I've seen people come and go, but they always come back. Stay safe
