I've been around long enough to see some poets come and go, cause of the monkey wrenches throwed in their show. It just seems to be the way the river flow.

I've weathered the storm
it hasn't all been with charm
Some have came to harm
but my pen has a strong arm
although my heart is warm
My soul jumps to the alarm

I've versed good
I've versed bad
I've versed happy
I've versed sad
I've versed romance
cause I still want to give love a chance
I've versed love
trying to fight the push and shove
The creators knows this up above

I'm just a man who decided to write verse
and it seems as though it has became
a positive and negative curse
I accept because there are things much worse
They call us verse writers poets by definition
Once bit it almost seems like religion
However I'm not into superstition
I'll stick to the facts in my intuition
as I make this poetic admission
So give me my cheese
I need my nutrition

Yet the site has changed, once your poem would go from top of the list to the bottom in hours, now it takes many days.
