I'M LETTING RIP
and post notes and photos about your poem like JAN ALLISON.
BS ON PS
The attitude of some folk I find quite abhorrent
Poets shouldn’t be guilt tripped into leaving a comment
No one knows what is going on in our life
depression or illness that’s causing us strife
Tragic loss of a pet, family member or friend
or awaiting a life coming close to an end
Maybe marital trouble has knocked them of course
and sadly they're going through a complicated divorce
Perhaps the poet is enjoying a luxury cruise
or maybe they’ve lost their much treasured muse
As a child I was taught, as I recall
to say something nice or nothing at all
I'll not lie saying a poem was well done
just to leave a comment for someone
So why are some 'sheeple' so quick to condemn
and stir the soup pot by causing more mayhem?
