I was shown a paragraph in someones blog where that someone thought over 3000 poems in the short time they were written was excessive...this is my answer to that someone...


That is quite altogether obvious,

I write for fun and to make others laugh,

Though some of my junk maybe worth only half,

Some of it as well is worth nothing,

But still good for a small grin,

To waste a talent to make someone happy,

I think is a major against the gods, sin…


Quantity is the route I go,

I have over 3000 poems, so?

Who is to say how my muse does flow,

Happy I am with what I got,

Better than writing like some old sot…


So here I be,

My poetry for free,

If it makes you laugh,

I have done my bit for king and country…J

QUALITY? Quality was part of the arrangement here? I need a team of lawyers. 3000, whatever. Hey, some people can write just ONE paragraph in a blog entry and have it turn out poorly.

Your writing is "just off" enough to be discovered and make you famous...sometimes it is the unique ones who become the lauded.
Take care,

3000 original smiles is a bad thing?

3000 musings from someone who enjoys life is a milestone on the face of this earth! We have enough to be bitter about and the constant onslaught of negativity is bringing the entire world to its death. I guess that's being proved right in the now, isn't it? People would rather attack the joy that remains than the evil earth contains. I'm glad to see you don't buy into their opinions. Keep your heart light dear one, there are those of us who still believe a smile is worth more than dollar. :D

Hi Ed,

From the Old Testament; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

I would say you do your bit for king and country very well and make people laugh,dance,etc. Keep writing what you feel and enjoy so others can enjoy it as well,that is what it's all about.

I don't think sharing over 3,ooo bits of your head is "excessive". Communication is where it's at. The worth of humor can't be measured.
And having used my philosopher bone, I'll just say YOU CRACK ME UP...
