Ugly Poet

My poems are weak and the verse is lacking And At this moment you're attacking Correcting and dissecting And inspecting it for flaws You're reading it and bleeding it And plotting superseding it Of this I'm sure you're capable And I salute you all While sitting here and writing this It brought me tender happiness The words were dancing fairies stomping circles through my head The letters started whirling Then swirling and twirling And stacked themselves in patterns forming combos in their stead These markings joined with others As I pressed on with a shutter Which direction was this leading? I was eager to discover! And in time I surely found it And was pleasantly astounded How the lines had stacked together and the meaning that surrounded

Hi Ronald, I did not mind the jab at all.... LOL, I will never take the fun out of poetry. As a matter of fact, I had my fun days on this site. Thank you for this poem. I'm just shopping for new poets to adore. Everything changes from time to time here. I don't think much of my old poems. They've grown all rusty :) Maybe one day, you'll let me take a jab at one of your poems, out of fun... HUGS... Linda

hello, Ronald I'm enjoying this and yes ugly we must all be in a way :) You are awesome if you wrote this poem right after you read my poem Pretty Poet. Nowhere do I see you lacking verse. Ronald, one only looks for the ugly side of things, I think it helps them cope with the way they percept things. Not I, I look into all the beauty of us all. I don't care how many flaws are found here and there. I hate pretty and perfertc.. Anyways. This is my newest and favorite poem. Hugs... LINDA

I didn't mean to insinuate anything negative about your character Linda, I promise. I've read a few of your poems, and noticed that you have 32 of the top 100 poems on here!! You're like the Michael Jordan of this apparently?! And I just walked into the cafeteria my first day at Attica and took a swing at the biggest, baddest mamma jamma!!! The bigfoot poem was freaking hilarious btw. I love the way you can be funny and still make it elegant. I'm one extreme or the other....Way to find that middle ground.
