In writing poetry

I am a hack.

But I enjoy

writing so give

me some slack.


With the

comments don't

be mean, or

overly critical.


Please be


and please

be political.



This poem was not written

about anyone on

This is just to express my frustations

about how cruel some people can be.

Hi Shirley - develop a thicker skin and keep writing. You are not alone in enduring the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune". A song of mine was recently marked 2/10 and described as "very poor quality" by a BBC Radio Country music DJ. The words she used were far from "fair comment" as they made no effort to differentiate between tune, lyric, arrangement, vocal, recording etc. In short, they were unprofessional, but there you go! Critics are not always right. In my case, someone took the trouble to put "Good track" beside the same song elsewhere - which helped even things out.
