|Because of humanities inability to remain focused and committed towards each other, one can often relate to the terrible pitfalls that mankind continues to fall into. They say patience is a virtue, yet without everyone sharing a common goal, far too many shall die in vain. Excellent write.|

|Okay, pardon my stupidity everybody, but I have no idea what a pantoum is and my wordweb program does not even have in its dictionary, which is unusual, but I like the poem either way...Ed|

|You are the third Poet to present a Pantoum here in AuthorsDen in the last two years; and this, "As Everybody Dies" is a Pantoum that supplies and complies with all that poetic literature is about!

Thank You for enriching the pages of Poetry.

|This is the best Pantoum I read this year.
"As Everybody Dies" will make the point, and will show the difference.
This is a Pantoum that can give any poet the Master's title.
"As Everybody Dies" makes this Pantoum alive.

|Poet Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen, - you have written one of kind - Pantoum of the twenty-first century. This Pantoum is self-explanatory, and has given us its most and the best lines.
Thank you, Author-Poet Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen.
Your Pantoum does make history!

|Sometimes, words are used in a context other than the most common, or a reader's mind-inferred, where it's a matter of perspective and relativity, one reason I am a synonym addict.
As a noun, animal is defined as 1. a living organism which feeds on organic matter, usu. one with specialized sense organs and a nervous system, and able to respond quickly to stimuli 3. a brutish or uncivilized person
To refine my meaning, I used the word 'human' in front of animal to lead the reader to see humanity is worse than animalkind, though they are defined the same. Ed is such a sweetheart, holding love in his large heart for all animals in the animalkingdom, and defends them with conviction and vigor.

|I sometimes think we do an injustice to animals when we refer to ourselves as such; although we really are animals, nonhuman animals often seem so much wiser than we seem to be, especially in today's sorry world.|

|Used to know what the name of this style of poetry was but I am having a "Senior Moment." Beautiful. Thought-provoking. Outstanding. Take a bow. Clap, clap.|
