AWARDED POEM OF THE DAY  ON 30TH DECEMBER 2018, HUGE CONGRATS TO EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED - NEW ADDITIONS ARE STILL WELCOME

Some poems I can’t comprehend I struggle reading to the end Flaunting a complex word Its usage quite absurd No comments not e’en from a friend! I love learning new words on soup but get frustrated when I see poems peppered with long words, especially when trying to force rhyming and the words don't make any sense at all in context to the subject! PLEASE SOUP ME ME YOUR POEM AND I'LL ADD IT TO THE POEM Those pompous poets totally bore us With clever words like 'radiciflorous' But what you should know Those words they borrow From the pages of Roget's Thesaurus WRITTEN BY LIN LANE Ben gobbled a dictionary whole and verbal diarrhoea took its toll Now he's spewing words flowing like loose turds I hope he’ll regain vowel control! WRITTEN BY JAN ALLISON - INSPIRED BY LIN'S POEM! These wordy poems they are making I find discombobulating The syllable count Continues to mount As their egos are greatly inflating. WRITTEN BY GARY SMITH Jake ate the whole encyclopedia Then it was covered by the news media An instant wordsmith But it was a big myth Now he’s in a state of Acedia WRITTEN BY ALEXIS Y There was a poet on here called Fred Flynn Composed a verse about scabies and gin Was poem of the day To everyone's dismay It should have gone in 'soups' recycle bin. WRITTEN BY TOM CUNNINGHAM A pompous poet always thinks he's right And stays up making rude comments all night With rude words that spit and spew The idiot has no clue That all of His poems need a rewrite WRITTEN BY TANIA KITCHIN I've got a good word but wait let me see Possibly change two syllables to three Your big pompous *** Craps sweet sassafras Insults disguised as complimentary WRITTEN BY TIM SMITH KEEP IT SIMPLE Using words with hidden meanings is for those with intellectual leanings Poems that are complicated are strictly over-rated Give me a poem with simple gleanings.

For sure. If those new poets would read more and write less they would excel quickly. I am hearing lots of fireworks out my window right now! Happy New Year! : ) xxoo

Thanks Connie, I am sure wordy poems and forced rhymes that don't make any sense in the context of a poem are not your cup of tea either!:-) hugs Jan xx

the people that participated did GREAT with their poems. this was such fun to read. I liked all these limericks very much. I agree too. I can't stand when someone plays around with lots of words nobody understands.

All of you have discouraged the poets' point of view. If you only took the time to review. You would gather that they were not talking about you. But needed a word or two from you for encouragement. This is all I want to say and dear poets' have a nice day.

Nothing in any of these limerick lines was intended to discourage anyone, but were meant in good humor. I would think everyone would be open minded enough to realize the jests.

Thanks for dropping by Marilyn.I try to comment and read as widely as I can but I find it impossible to comment on a poem that just doesn't make sense.:-) hugs jan xx

Thanks Paul, all credit goes to Lin for suggesting it. I write many limericks but there are few which turn into a collaboration:-) hugs jan xx

Ah! Just got back from scrambling all over a castle to find a fab Jan collab as POTD! Excellent! I so agree with you all. One or two interesting words I’m all for - and I’m happy to be enriched by looking them up if I’m enjoying the poem. A whole poem full? Not for me.

I've learned so many new words since joining soup (some I won't repeat lol) I just don't get why people force rhyming with a word that has absolutely nothing to do with the context of a poem and it just doesn't make sense! Big words are fine as long as they are used sparingly. i give up if I have to keep stopping to try and fathom what the poem is about ,:-) My words are simple, poopy but simple lol:-) hugs Jan xx
