Sorry DK but I do not write the POTW intros. It is someone far cleverer than I and I understand it is to remain anonymous, at least it was when I was involved some time ago.

No shame taken πŸ˜‡

Sorry
I can do no better
on that poem
they can't all be jewels
most are just rocks

I agree wholeheartedly
with your opinion of
"The Church"
Jesus would be appalled
at the wealth of the churches
vs. the poverty of the common man
all the churches ever do is
ask for money...
the church is as corrupt as the government
but far more hypocritical
throw the money-changers out!

is it YOU who writes the intros for poem of the week?
if so, I would like to say they are outstanding.
some of the best writing is in those reviews.

If you are not writing them,
shame on you!

I hear where you're coming from Tom. You wonder why something you think is good is 'ignored'. Then I say, hey? who cares, I enjoyed creating it. And yes, it is a 'creation'. Not just a collection of words.

Have just come across you. Gosh you've been around a while...... I liked 'Eccentricities'

Sorry Leonard was out.

The ability is not the right; without neither the voice nor the ability to write, the righteous are diminished. I think we are broadly in agreement. Tommy

I am basically a "nice" person.
but I am often misunderstood,
Like most poets I am not recognized
in my own time.
Only death will give me fame.
However I decided against it.
Once it occurs,
You can't come back from it.

Hi Dylan. Thank you for your comments on my poem "Itch Hunt" and on my profile. I appreciate the kind words.

I, also, enjoy your work and style. "Chemistry Betrays" especially stands out to me (as my inner "chem-lab" bursts beakers and crosses wires). Aggressive intro followed by powerful use of your epic lexicon. Would be a great slam.

Looks like you're just getting settled in to WoL? I am new here, too. Welcome aboard and hope to see more from you soon!

Droll are these poems
unabashedly so
they aren't too good
but so it goes,
I find humor in things
it just naturally flows
when it comes to a rhyme
I just can't say No.

Hi JC - a follow-up to your comment earlier today on my own profile
page. Whilst I was unsuccessful in completing an online contribution
here's a thought. IF you have a PayPal account it would be easy for me to send you the sum I would have sent previously - which you
could then use towards your chosen charity before you succumb to
stress and strain brought on by your efforts. Remembering a certain
Henry Ford of motor car fame:" Exercise is bunk. If you're healthy,
you don't need it and if you're sick you shouldn't take it." Boom-boom! πŸ˜—

Hi Sarah,

I'd love to expand this poem for a children's book but unfortunately I wouldn't know where to begin.

I do like writing narrative poems, some have an adult twist such as Boy what a Lady! and the Princess and the Frog (which needs a rewrite). I'm working on several storylines at the moment but it takes me a while to get them onto paper.

Thanks for your interest and if I did ever get a poem published I'd know where to come for an illustrator.

hello Wayne
I'm just replying to your reply on the Christmas Turkey poem if you do decide to give it a try and need an illustrator
I would definitely be interested in doing some illustrations for you if you decide to make a children's book from this poem
have a think about it and get back to me
I think it would be a fabulous children's book
no harm in trying x😊

I'm still getting the hang of the WOL website- but I think it was in relation to my "Turkey in sheep's clothing" poem. I wouldn't know how to get started with an illustrated book . However I'm attempting to set up a Youtube channel and record my voiceover with pictures etc. Early days but hopefully I'll get there soon. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my profile x
