The Cat's Ankle (Book) - 7/23/2006 3:56:57 AM
I haven't bought this book of poetry yet, but after reading Peter J. Benson's wry and delightful excerpt, "The Cat's Ankle", I shall be tempted to do so. His book is described as 'a collection of observations', and "The Cat's Ankle" is definitely an observation on possessing a demanding pet, in this poem, a cat who is obviously much loved. Peter J. Benson writes well, and his slightly sardonic ode to his cat is relevant to the majority of animal lovers, who are willing slaves to their non-human companions.

I liked it a lot, but i agree with Claywoman, some of us are more free than others. We have work to do.

Letter to Francis Scott Key (Article) - 11/25/2002 8:39:26 AM
Very well written and I share your optimism, though I think this current crisis will go on for quite a while. It is becoming more and more clear that the rest of the world cannot peacefully coexist with Fundamentalist Islam. The recent riots in Nigeria over a Beauty Paegent deemed "offensive to Muslims" is more proof, if the unremitting attacks on Israeli civilians isn't enough. I think Islamic Fundamentalism is a bigger movement than the West wants to think it is, though there are indeed still enough true Muslims who realize that this clash will not destroy the West, but may ultimately, if allowed to progress, destroy Islam as it now exists. The tolerant West sees this as a crisis with certain radicals (terrorists), but Fundamentalist Muslims see it as a "Holy or Religious War. Those two views (universal tolerance and rabid intolerance) cannot exist together for very long. Fine writing!

But does it wave over "the land of the free?" Ask a Native American who lived in indenturetude until 1906, or wasn't made a citizen until 1924, ask the child ripped from their families and forced to go to a boarding school far from their reservation and family and told they were orphans. Has this actually happened? Yes, almost everyday...ask a Native...

Letter to Francis Scott Key (Article) - 3/22/2002 9:49:40 AM
This is incredible!! Not only did you think "out of the box" with the very nature of this piece, but your use of language, patriotism and backgroud was perfect! Very impressive!

All the powers that be hard at work, I still have all of my albums and only a few 45's. Just like all my shows, documentaries, movies on tape just transferred them all over to CD's and DVD's, but part with the originals, I think not.... Be always safe, Karen

It Never Stops (Poetry) - 1/21/2009 9:14:01 PM
A glorious, delirous romp through the ages of music-media-fixtures, and decried to/with melancholy, which was there, in plenty. Yet, hopeful. What next, Peter? Should It stop? I don't think so! Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen

It Never Stops (Poetry) - 1/21/2009 8:29:49 PM
My hubby and I have inherited a juke box from my father-in-law. Along with the juke box there are many 45 records, boxes and boxes of them!!! Many of these records are of old songs, and I have been treasurig them as if they were antiques; and believe me, I like many of the old songs. I prefer them to the modern ones. With the mp3 players, and iPod and all that stuff now in the market, I would think that our juke box and the records will very soon become antiques, and I greatly treasure them!!! Modern technologies are good, but the antiques are much better and worth a lot more!!! Sandie Angel :o)

Iraq Fathers (Poetry) - 3/31/2008 6:21:13 AM
I have had many friends in Iraq, and I have lost a few. I myself was deployed to the region, but before this current war. It's never easy to see young men and women go to war and worry about the danger they are in, and how they will return. Having a child in war is something I have not yet experienced, so I cannot understand the full pain and fear, but I can imagine the edges of those feelings. This is an insightful view of how the links between the two "sides" are greater than the politics, the battles and even the fearful nights. Thank you, Terry

Thanksgiving (Poetry) - 11/16/2007 1:43:00 AM
Peter, My good man, your casual but meaningful conversation with God is unique. Indeed, it is almost unheard of these days. I was reassured, reading your verbal bout with the inevitable winner! You have a way with words, so your poem is most enjoyable. I am sorry about your medical problem, and your son serving in the military. I go back to WW Two, having put in five years in that conflict. My fear is that from the President on down, Americans forget too soon, that the Ambitious Bastards are out there to kill and conquer. Where and how we hit back is for those who are smarter than I... and willing to run for office or make war a career. It appears that, again, the younger, the less history known, and that is always true! Have a great Thanksgiving, and keep whatever faith you have left. - Bill

Thanksgiving (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 12:57:14 AM
Very good. A wry poem for Thanksgiving. This author's irony and natural cynicism makes him appreciate the vagaries of life.

Thanksgiving (Poetry) - 11/13/2007 8:57:57 PM
Peter, I had no idea of the many struggles and challenges that you have had this past year. Your words powerfully real. Peter you never do shallow, you put it out there in words that have impact! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Remembering Tomorrow (Poetry) - 9/24/2006 7:41:42 PM
Hi Peter: You can avoid having to repeat the same lines over and over again. In my HUMBLE opinion, you could easily just place it in the beginning, for example: Iím having a hard time remembering tomorrow - After the dash you can just place your 3 stanzas WITHOUT repeating those lines. I hope this helps. Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)

This poem rings true - it captures humans' capacity to blank out the globe's universal worries like death and destruction, in order to concentrate on the immmediate realities like day to day living. Liked it a lot. Frances

War never changes. The chow still sucks, the ground is still hard and cold, the dust still clogs your ears, the 1st. Lewey is still stupid, its five minuets of hell and days of bordem, your weapon always needs cleaning, sandbags have to be filled, holes have to be dug, you worry about the "to whome it may concern round", and your enemy is hard to find and too easy to kill, and your buddies and Non-Coms keep you going-and alive. Good work Peter. Semper Fi...The Sarge

My Soldier (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 1:54:38 PM
Here at home, it's business as usual. Does anybody understand that there are Americans fighting for Iraqi freedom, not ours? It is a bitter vetch I will agree, but without the American and British freedom fighters all of Europe would probably be speaking German today. It is really not our war, but it is one that needs to be fought and we have a choice to fight it on their ground or wait for it to come to our own. Freedom should be the birthright of every human on the planet but sadly, that is not the case. It is the strength, courage, pride and belief in freedom of each of our soldiers that will be the only possibility for freedom to ever reign in our world. I pray for the safety of each of them as I too have "My Soldier" over there on his third tour, fighting for Iraqi Freedom and for the future of the Iraqi children. As far as the terrorists are concerned, it is not easy to fight them because when you have have nothing to lose and when you believe that in death you have more than you will have in life, fear is not a motivating factor. Take care, Sherry

This is a great theme for a poem- more people should see as you do (I do!) and maybe this world would not be so throw-away, with everything from things to people.

Damron, Dammit (Poetry) - 8/26/2005 6:26:26 AM
Peter, I feel your pain in your moliminous weaving of your words. You were able to accept the inevitable, yet make me feel the world is a little suboptimal without Damron in it. BH

Peter, Listen to Ledbelly or someone else...then sit down, open your mind and write...don't keep it bottled up inside you!!!

Great job of portraying an unfortunate reality in today's world of electronic "magic." Thank you, Peter. Love and peace. Regis

Anglo-American Journey (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 8:46:56 AM
I love it, Peter!!! The rhythm, the flow, the memories and the vagabond sense of it! And to think it came from a few long-past written lines! I must admit I do that, too, though - write down a word or line on a notebook, and come across it months and even years later. Thanks so much for the wanderlust. Peace.

Anglo-American Journey (Poetry) - 2/9/2005 7:17:07 AM
It is fun going on trips like this. Some of the names I was not sure of, but I was sure of the intentions of the writer and totally enjoyed myself :-)

Anglo-American Journey (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 11:42:06 AM
Well, you do read, lol. (joking) My bags are packed and I'm ready to go, on a mental trip that is. ;) Really, I was all over the map with you, it brought back memories of things that I've seen, read and loved. My hat's a tippin' to ya! JC xoxoxo PS. I think it's cool that this started from a few lines in an old notebook, I do that too. Very cool Peter. :)

Anglo-American Journey (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 2:37:58 AM
Dear Peter; Now, THAT'S MY PETER AT HIS BEST! This surely shows the wanderlust and adventuring vagabond which is you! It was a GREAT read and I very much enjoyed its shared historical locales and moments. This a another of your very good works, Peter. It IS a song! Doc

No Valentine (Poetry) - 2/1/2005 8:58:50 PM
Loving this one, are you gonna write one for 2005, or just move this to the top? ;) Loving her everyday with nothing to prove, is the best, I'd just move it. JC xoxoxo

HUNTING (Poetry) - 11/14/2004 11:05:00 AM
I used to hunt. Ate every thing I shot. Never bragged in bars. The hardest game were two-legged dears that often got away. ;-) Ron

New World Media (Poetry) - 11/14/2004 10:58:46 AM
Great sarcastic humour, Peter--love it. Last week after a 17 year old nephew here from Mexico on drugs was asked to leave, he stabbed his aunt and five girl cousins just five doors down my street. The youngest girl, ten, died and he fled. I came home to a media blitz. A week before, the girls had ignored my plea, but the murderer, speaking good English, had gladly helped me get my van ramp up.

You're right - a large part of our public experience feels like a garbage can. Is this impression truthful? I don't know, frankly. But we seem to live in a time of genuine sadness. Very interesting write. Franz

New World Media (Poetry) - 11/8/2004 9:45:07 PM
excellent poem ... luv the black humor ... unfortunately, the new age media reinvents old news ...

New World Media (Poetry) - 11/8/2004 8:09:50 PM
:) I love it, Peter, just read it at RT and was going to suggest you post it. It's moody and melancholy, poignant and sad and very modern in tone, but not in 'balladness'...

Many types of hunting are dealt with, within this write. The tales of hunters go on and on........... Great write.

I HATE DEER SEASON!! just the idea of all those guys who never touch a gun all year, loading up with booze and piss and vinegar and heading for the woods scares me to death. my grandson broke his arm three weeks ago and my first thought was...he can't go deer hunting LOL

Love in the Midst (Poetry) - 9/23/2004 4:31:45 AM
Excellent concept, Peter. I'd suggest you find at least one headline related to the divorce rate or destruction of the family and of course joblessness. These are the everyday struggles most likely create troubles in the midst of married love, unless your point is that the problems of the world are so much bigger than the struggles of one pair.

Love in the Midst (Poetry) - 9/5/2004 6:21:56 PM

Great last line, Peter! And the tone of rueful scorn at self is ethereal in its ellusive, yet heedful, nature!

The loves I left behind Are still loved By me. But the greatest love Is yours. Letting me love them So I could learn how to love you. so much wisdom in these much pain jealousy strife and anger would be deleted by just 'allowing'..this is a superb write..I'm saving this one ..Thankyou! Vesna :)

Bar Language (Poetry) - 6/6/2004 5:16:16 PM
War has brought out a side to writers that without which we would have never have known the horrors unless there ourselves. People like Wilfred Owen, Rupert Brooke, Sigfried Sassoon, really brought the effects of war to those interested in reading it. And of course, Hemingway. I liked the part about the triple crown/conversation. This is refreshing.

Bar Language (Poetry) - 6/5/2004 5:59:54 AM
WOW, sure get a spectrum of American feelings on here, stunning write, apart from, slam dunk?????Rhyme for drunk maybe???

Peter, this was fucking A. I am sickened by all the Ex Generals and give me a break Col.'s that know exactly how to create a democracy from a dictatorship overnight.

I see you have faced the great divide as well, how to teach children after they reached the age of consent. You need to try a college classroom, Peter. lgl

Parris Island (Poetry) - 5/19/2004 3:20:26 PM
Peter...I am a former Marine and one of my sons followed in my footsteps, so I can relate to this fine work. I like this.

The Mines Lament (Poetry) - 5/17/2004 2:34:22 PM
I feel a song coming on Peter...I wish I could write a song hear the music forming in my head and the words on the paper...ah...those glorious days!

The Mines Lament (Poetry) - 5/17/2004 9:22:48 AM
I am reminded of Sean Connery's character as an older famous author to an aspiring kid: "Tis music to the eye, but what is the point?" lgl

The Mines Lament (Poetry) - 5/17/2004 5:44:19 AM
Excellent write Peter!! Love Tinka

The Mines Lament (Poetry) - 5/17/2004 4:05:17 AM
Several levels to this mine Peter, the exhausted coal mines of Lancashire and Yorkshire, the emotions of someone like me, well past the first flush of middle age but with a little left to give, or the dying communities of colliers from Tyneside to Tennessee. Nice to see poetry with a social content around here. Ian

The Mines Lament (Poetry) - 5/17/2004 3:04:05 AM
Peter, from your poetry it appears you have just about travelled the spectrum. Be of good cheer, you still have a few steps left.

Parris Island (Poetry) - 4/22/2004 8:56:11 PM
Ah, Peter, I weep with you... Weeping can be a sign of respect, an upheaval of joy, an immense pride, or just an offering to the miraculousness of life's continuation. Weeping is an embrace of self, and in embracing self, we embrace humanity. One day it will be your son's turn to weep, learned from his father, and passed on to his son. The gift of compassion is precious, thank you for passing yours along, Peter, to your son, and us you touch on the Net. It is an honor to be your friend. These lines say it all: "You had the outthrust chest; I had the bursting chest. You marched with pride I choked inside." Safe journeys to your son, to you and to Karen.

Parris Island (Poetry) - 4/20/2004 5:24:03 AM
Congratulations: Your song is another Devil Dog! Nicely written. I was Devil Dog, too. I'll never forget Parris Island. I would love to do it again, right now... just for the challenge, 25 years later, to see how I would do. I'm a former US Marine, but I remember every detail; every day, even those blurred by a raucous night before. Jeff Mason, Sgt. E-5, 2nd Mar Div, 2nd FSSG, French Creek, Camp LeJeune, N.C. 28542. (hmm... I even remember the zip code there)

Parris Island (Poetry) - 4/19/2004 6:46:41 PM
You weep tears of pride trickles between the letters of every word of this. Touching and loving write. Lisa
