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

d.k.,

Thank you for your post on my blog. I am afraid you are right. We have lost our values and free spirit to be and to speak freely. The ยดthought police ยดmaybe listening. Beware, You could be trumped at any moment.

Thanks

d.k

To which food are you referring: bitter and pickled eggs (beer and hard boiled eggs) or raspberry ripple (a flavoured ice cream) ? I looked up temale but think I would prefer one of the two I have described.

Hello D.K - in reply to your question about notifications, I am still getting them, but I had to say, on a kind of form to fill in, which ones I wanted, and which not. Perhaps if you go to your account you will find this form.

Always enjoy your stuff! Hope you are still getting fed one way or another| Perhaps the last effort, about departing, was due to starvation tactics? Cabeza di cocco!!!!! Not really, love your poems, keep one cheerful. What exactly are enchiladas anyway? Obviously food of a Spanish origin, but can't get further than that, and am too lazy to look it up.

Have you ever read one of my poems? I'm curious because I know you read my comments, and with no profile picture I can't tell if you're a spambot that came to life and developed a sense of humor, or if you're messing with me. . . .

Stop messing with me!!!๐Ÿ˜…

But do keep writing.

d. I love your sample 'chain letter'

You could not ever be called 'the weakest link in the chain' However if that link is anywhere above where you are... Its a rapid decent to a pile of rusty bits of metal hoops clinging onto each other in the vain hope that someone will link you back up for some useful purpose.

Where was I? Oh! I remember chain letters!

I am still waiting for mine...
Some bugger always deletes it before I see it!

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).

Hello dk....I'm alive! I just saw your message. I laughed so loud my ribs hurt.

I have returned to NY and am very busy getting settled in. I miss WOL and look forward to joining in the fun soon. Be well!, Jane

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 oneยดs own style. We all help each other through constructive criticism.

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 ๐Ÿ˜) 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 comment๐Ÿ˜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.๐Ÿ˜Ž

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,

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 ๐Ÿ˜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.
