Biography

I have been accused of writing poems. although my thoughts aren't large, still thought goes into my poems I plead Guilty as so charged.

Samples

CHAIN LETTER I love breaking chain letters especially the ones that say this has been sent to over 30,000 people and now you have a chance to read it and pass it on to all your friends and relatives who will in turn pass it on again it is up to you they say to keep it going Ad infinitum Ad nauseam because it the righteous thing to do and anyone who breaks this chain is despicable and morally bankrupt bereft of any mercy too bad DELETE the end of the chain sent into trash-file oblivion I hide in the closet awaiting the chain letter Gestapo I am certain they will come for me and take me in for questioning and after waterboarding force me to confess I am indeed the chain letter assassin the provocateur who deliberately with malice aforethought stopped the all important chain I will be publicly whipped then tarred and feathered ultimately I will be hung from the highest e-mail post my body thrown into the river in passing I would add this poem is also a chain-letter but poems are different... DO NOT BREAK THIS CHAIN. -d.knape

Some of your list of questions after my comment I have already covered on 6 August so that should suffice. Insults tend to go stale quite quickly unless they are very skilled. It is not obligatory to comment on poems but where an inspiration comes in I feel it is justified, which I did in your case. Perhaps you might feel the urge yourself someday. Other than that I am flummoxed - either I am not getting your humour or aliens have landed. (That's my humour).

dk.,

You are not taking up my valuable time as I believe that as we comment on each others poetry we are learning all the time. Being on this site is invaluable in improving oneΒ΄s own style. We all help each other through constructive criticism.

Hi DK, so sorry I didn't respond to your comments on my blog, I guess I'm not sophisticated enough to get your meaning. Still loving your poetry though. Cheers, Kate

Hi DK - my career largely consisted of "people watching"
but at that stage of life, an active interest in poetry was not involved. In my retirement, waiting rooms might certainly
be source of poetical ponderings but I usually have other
things (like treatment 😐) on my mind. However, I might
find something in future experience that sees me look to
humour for a poem when I'm next due for the needle or drill!
Cheers.

Hi dknape!
I'm from Ireland, my name is an Irish name.
It is pronounce like 'Qweeva'

I definitely get a lot of attraction with my name. It's unique I suppose haha.

June is my middle name Jane is a name I chose for myself when I had my confirmation.

I guess I could have chose an easier name but what fun would that be haha!

Thanks for your commentπŸ˜ƒ

Hello DK! Love your profile!!! Feel like that myself. About your query - they do eat sardines, but being a pastoral people love mutton!!!!!!!
Also loved Breaking the chain. mixed up the torturers a bit though! Gestapo OK, but waterboarding I think is US technology, and as for tarring and feathering!!!!!! Loved it.

You will be glad to hear I am not competing for POTW at the moment, (Why they awarded it to me stll astonishes me) as I have broken my wrist!!!!!

Keep up the go0d work! Surprised Wolfgar Meire didn't get at you for the anachronisms!!!! Jennifer

I had never read your sample 'Chain Letter' fully until now. That is funny, to hold up someone else's hopes of a damn message, and then even better - to delete it. You are sly.😎

I also have burning bushes in my ears and brimstone in my nose - but you can't see that part. . .

Hello there DK - thanks for the comment on my page.
No - it's not me on the bench - a snap by me taken in
Dartmouth, Devon, overlooking the River Dart towards its
estuary. This was the jumping-off spot for many US armed
forces' vessels employed in the D-Day Landings 1944...on
Utah Beach. Now it is a very popular holiday spot - but
you can also probably imagine how busy it was then!
Cheers,
MC

10 for effort, quality poetry, and making me laugh. Especially the last one. That's really important.

Marmite is something similar to Vegamin I think in the USA and Rioja is a Spanish wine. Both are delicious. You must be somewhere else on the globe I think.

Hi D
No I don't carry the sign a round with me. It was more about my presumption at calling myself a poet and leaving it to others to decide. It is probably getting a bit old now so I should perhaps change the profile picture.
Cheers

Hi DK - the humour in your blogs is always welcome and
especially when it connects with things we find ourselves
suffering in this electronic/keep-up world. I tend to agree
with TA when he mentioned his suspicions that clicking on
"unsubscribe" might send an unwanted message to its
source - and, instead, I look for "delete" whenever possible. Rest assured, I do not see that happening in respect of anything you post on past/present evidence πŸ˜ƒ.

That's funny stuff, but nah nothing too dicey. I got the pen name from a portmanteau of the first two rap names I had when I started back in high school.

Not my best work, but someone had to do it.

Re your water poem I saw two levels. The literal one of water flowing down to it's home the sea. The second, of us flowing through life, buffeted by rills and rocks, looking for 'home' 😎

Hey d. Knape, thanks for your lovely comments on The Spaces Between. I wrote it after many days of visiting my Dad in ICU so it is an important part to me. Events like that make one realise we have very little control. I really appreciate your feedback.

Hi d.Knape.

I have now removed my comment to your poem "A Room full of Poets" as you must have regarded it unfavourably, which perhaps it was, although I still retain that impression. I was trying to be positive in the comment. As for your nitpicking of my profile, I don't feel I have to defend it too much. Your view of poem of the week is understandable in that we all have opinions and will be tempted to knock it off its perch, as I have done myself, or wished to at least.
I'm not what the score is on this quite sad game. Yes, the photo was taken in 1967, but looks better than the old codger I am now. Inappropriate perhaps. No idea where you got the name mistake from, sorry. As for Domestos, I must get out more often. I think I lifted that from an old comic now passed away.

Apart from that have a nice day and keep up the writing.

Nod and a wink.

No, not a dead end street - although in real life, it IS
"one-way" - as is life itself! 😏
