Limerick On Poets

A LIMERICK ON NOTED SOUP POETS

Bob Hinshaw, Tom Cunningham, James Edward Lee, Sr., Russell Sivey, Gordon McConnell,  Greg Barden, Emile Pinet, Silent One, WingedWarrior, Charles Messina, Gershon Wolf, Richard Lamoureux, Joe Flack, Liam McDaid, Rick Parise, Curtis Johnson, Curtis Futch, Jr., Brian Strand, Don Johnson, Jack Ellison, Roblert Lindley, Timothy McGuire, John Gondolf, Arturo Michael, Edward Ibeh, Kevin Shaw, Harry Horsman, Dr. Ram Mehta

They come from all walks of life
Some from countries filled with strife
They wish to convey
Their life in a way
That cuts to the core like a knife

They write words of wisdom, words that inspire
Words of great mirth, and some words of hell fire
Some poems tell a story
On getting to glory
They truly are poets that we can admire

When you read the words they have written
I feel certain that you will be smitten
You may laugh, or you may cry
You may just chuckle, or only sigh
But what they have written is always fittin'

If your name is not here, please forgive me
The list is inexhaustible, you see
It would take many days
To give everyone praise
And on that, I think you'll agree

It's hard to include everyone on a list. I never dedicate poems to poets. I wrote one for a Poetess, who totally ignored it. And for reasons unknown will never comment to any of my poetry. Others poets suffer from poetic arrogance and demand my comments for each poem. I can't deal with such insanity. I will write someone personally, but no more public adulation. It blows up in my face...,one, Two, creates envy in others. I had no idea your daughter writes here. Wonderful. Panagiota

Likewise, my Brother. I had not written and submitted anything for a while and then ended up getting a trophy win on one of three poems posted on the same day. Of course, your name is among those whom I listed off the top of my head.

If not for Tom, I would not have known of this piece. I enjoyed his tribute to you. I am honoured to have my name amongst this amazing group of poets. What a thoughtful and well crafted gift you have given us. Blessings Richard.

Thank you so much, Richard! Tom is a highly respected poet, and a great friend. Although I have never met him, he has always been among the first to comment on anything I post. As the list kept growing, I knew I could not recognize everyone on Soup but as I was making the list by memory, it evolved into one that consisted of certain poets who easily came to mind due to their support, encouragement and kind comments. I wish I could have included more. I pray that no one got offended at their name not appearing.

Masterful way to write limericks. I wondered about Russel I know he's on other sites. Pity it's been almost two years since he left after his accident.

Victor, first of all, forgive me for your name not being on the list. Space was getting short and I know some of my friends on Soup may wonder why I missed them. I apologetically noted that in the limerick. I was unaware of Russell's accident but he had sponsored a contest and it never got judged. I hope he has fully recovered.

^WW^ I never forget the ladies my brother! I had a meeting that I couldn't get out of so I wrote one for the ladies later. Good to hear from you. It's been too hot here in Georgia to do much jigging but I still shake a leg ever now and then. My list, if I would have had room, would have contained more names, but space being limited, I had to quit. You will always be on my list old jigger! All is well with me, and I hope with you also.

Jan, rest assured, there will be a list of the great female poets on Soup. I just had to stop and take time to run some information for the church bulletin and some notes for a meeting tonight. I would otherwise be classified as a chauvinist if I didn't make a list of great lady poets. lol

Bob, I will never devise a list of great poets, great friends and men who have inspired me without your name being at the top of the list. Yes, old AF Fellers must stick together!
