So Much Bull-Crap

Amazing, numbers of folks who feel entitled Because life has never dealt them a blow, They are filled up with so much bull-crap On others they think they must bestow. From their ivory towers they can be rude And expect nothing of consequence in return, But when I encounter such petty bull-crap I find myself doing a hundred-degree slow burn. Then, I am likely to have a response for this turd Not accepted in the best of realms of society, But familiar to all who think like me of these folks I am more than happy to flip them the bird! SECOND PLACE WINNER written December 18, 2021 especially for "King-Size Bull Crap Poetry Contest" sponsored by Charles Messina

I love this! It's a contest I would have had a lot of fun with. Unfortunately, I've been too busy teaching to write lately. Congratulations!

I loved this one. I must have been in a rare mood when I wrote it, but boy does it ever resonate!

It's only natural, Milton, that people who have the most feel entitled to have the most, while the rest of us who have little are exhorted by moralists to be grateful for the little that we have. Which of these two groups are the stupidest? / Maurice

I couldn't have said it better, Maurice. And, yes, you are absolutely right. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments, Maurice, and needless to say, I love your poems!

I hope so, Bill. I haven't had a good win in a long time. OTOH, I don't write to get "wins." So, my best poetry, IMHO, aren't those entered in contests. When I go through and look at my poems, the ones I feel are good are seldom entered in a contest. Thanks for your encouragement!

Couldn't finish reading this one, Milt. Sorry, but I got some doo-doo in my eye. ~ Cleaning up, gw

Oh, I'm sorry, gw. Well, c'mon back when you've got yourself cleaned up. Thanks!

Good luck in the contest, Milt.. I guess am a wimp.. but I ignore patty actions. Now if I see it in front of me nonmatter big or small, I will walk in the middle and say my two cents worth to protect the innocent, I am that stupid since I was a child. Did you see my grandbabies big smile on Facebook, he help put up the small Christmas tree.

Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments, Eve. I look at Facebook about one or twice a week. But, I'll try to find the picture you're talking about.

lol, I knew of few people who think they are entitled, or their ivory tower was built on the perfection they own. I think broken and dented people give off much more light, you poured out your heart and wrote an amazing poem, winning wishes being sent, from my Towering Pizza, :)

Thanks so much, Vie, for your thoughful response to my poem. People who have feelings of entitlement really annoy me. I try to steer clear of that kind as much as possible! Best wishes to you during this holiday season.
