Honoring a Poet-Collaboration

Tania Kitchin deserves to be honored for her courage. If you would like to honor her, send me your thoughts in couplet form. Thanks.
I have some recognition that I'd like to bring forth to all. Thanks to Tania for having our backs and standing tall. I’m proud of your character and standing up for what you believe. I just want to say you’re awesome, and I hope you never leave. Mark Koplin Tania Kitchin, cheers to you for writing with lucidity Your poem of the day carried its weight with validity For the courage to write the truth, you were chided But you should've been praised and not derided Tania, you're being honored for taking a stand You didn't merit the need for a harsh reprimand Jenna Logan I thought that I’d better pitch in adding support for Tania Kitchin She wrote her lines straight from the heart though the POTD honour was soon to depart I feel there was no need to apologize Cos nasty soup trolls we all despise Jan Allison Why reprimand Tania? this really isn’t right She was only highlighting not starting up a fight My support I bring to this wee collab Your stand tall, we have it, we have! Angela Tune When confronted by trolls and bullies, Tania will speak her mind A lady of integrity and steel, I think that you will find. She like many of us here wants a quiet life without any fuss And if what she wrote that day was wrong then I'm Sparticus. Tom Cunningham
