Hey PSoupers & friends,

The VISCERAL contest is in full GEAR!

So many great writers here on this forum.


  1. Of or relating to the viscera.
  2. Relating to deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect: "the voters' visceral fear of change".

A delusional MO-RON, on this site, tried to bang me down on this contest but - eat crow, BIOTCH! BTW - I blocked your idiocies. Condolences.

And CH - (aka, OCD Grandpa) I can shove a quilled calligraphy pen up my stinky, hairy sphincter (after a tequila and mojito hangover) and still write more eloquently and intelligently than you! Got that? Good.                        Moron.

On a lighter note, read the rules of the contest. And viscerally excite me!

Such the cad, 'tis I. Does anyone wanna challenge the Brooklyn boy?


Peace always, J

I have more integrity than both you and your wife combined. Yeah...but can she write a PERFECT HAIKU? I THINK NOT! And neither can you! Best wishes, Grandpa Henderson, and, may I remind you - you have never commented on any one of my poems in the past. I have been off the Soup for sometime now. I may post a contest every once and awhile and sometimes I host a contest. Who are you? I've been on PSoup since 2005. Are you confusing me with someone else or are you having an Alzheimer seizure? WHO IS CHARLES HENDERSON? I think the mental disabilities lie in your eldered brain, not mine.

And Cyndi - I couldn't give a shit if you entered my contest or not. BOO-HOO, I'm gonna friggin' cry. Like you've ever read or commented on any of my writings. REALLY? And who is referring to "peace?" Cyndi, you're so low-self esteemed pretentious- it makes me laugh! Odd comments? Get a good Orthodox Jewish therapist, pumpkin noodle. You need one! LOL!

Hey Carolyn - I don't know you (and not that I want to). No avatar picture? Interesting...you were probably heinous as a child. A hair lip. Melanoma? Poor thing! A battery acid flushing? An apology? Do you know me? An apology should be made to your father...obviously he didn't wear a condom during that whimsical night when...oh well - OOOOPPS! Hey! Here you are! OH, yep (yawn) here you are. Enter my VISCERAL contest! If you dare! SMILES, J

This blog will self destruct before morning. Exactly what aspect of peace are you referring to? I think you didn't need to put up a definition. Your odd comments seems to sum up your contest. I will write a "visceral" poem, might even post it. But it won't find its way to your contest. PS- good luck on... whatever.

Hmmm...is right. You did take your bi-polar, schizo-multi-personality disorder medications today? Didn't you, sweetheart? C'mon, be honest with me, Sybil.
