    Wow! Over 20,000 poems a week! at 10 seconds per poem, that's 200,000 seconds, or about 60 hours. I doubt even poetry contest judges or magazine editors work that hard. Which ones did they like best?Did they remember any?

    Here's the first edition my much anticipated " Top Five List of Poets on Poemhunter" I'll do a new one every month. Don't sweat it if you're not here, I haven't gotten around to all of everyone's stuff yet. You may push your way in by next month.

    5) Danny-Employs a lot of humor which I love. I want to drink pint with him.
    4) Lamont-Stays true to what he loves and 'brings it' every poem. Could be higher but I'm more of a free-form guy.
    3) Jefferson-Could be higher but I only have 4 poems to go by. Love his wacky sense of the absurd.
    2) Dog God 8hate-The guy is brilliant in my book. Makes you think on about 6 different levels.
    1) delilah contrapunctal-We had a scrap last night but it doesn't matter. A terrific poet. Where has she been and why doesn't anyone read her poems?I didn't see very many comments!

    Honorable mention- Angie (don't know much of her stuff, but what I've seen ain't bad) , Acker (improving) , Hogg (haven't got to much of him yet. I will) , Grossman (crazy MF) , Ralph (keep trying) Adam (tries his a*s off) . I've forgotten a few, I'll catch you next month.

    Oh where Oh where is the day?
    Why does it always go away?
    And leave me to the night so alone
    When we all believe
    We are in the zone
    When truly bumping into something
    Did you light up or turn to stone?
    My truth does sting
    You or a clone?
    So many out there
    Why I have so many cares
    Moon blood red
    How many nights?
    Seven I suppose
    Seems like it should be six
    Time to pick up Styx
    Too much time on my hands
    Doing all I can.
    Take a lesson from the caterpillar
    But I want to be a butterfly.

    A Blood Moon Night
    Written by Adam M. Snow

    Tonight I watched in awe,
    the moon once pure and white.
    Obeying the nighttime law;
    lighting the sky so bright.
    The stars, the moon in sync,
    dancing their worries away.
    The end can happen in a blink;
    a sudden halt would not sway.
    Darker the night grew -
    and darker the moon dost shine.
    I stood there in awe, in view,
    - a bloodish sublime.
    The proud moon once danced so free,
    now cowaring behind a blood red veil.
    I stood there in awe to see,
    the world halt with a quail.
    The moon eclipsed in a taint of dark red;
    I stood there in awe in yonder.
    " Is not the moon dead?
    What of this?" I ponder.
    Hours pass feeling like eternity,
    watching the blood moon night pass.
    Returning the world back to modernity,
    knowing this isn't the last.
    The moon is pure and white once more.
    Don't succumb to joy just yet.
    Again it'll happen, I swore -
    three more nights, a blood moon to fret.

    A counter sonnet.



    Teach me to swim.
    I don't want to go  the  gym.
    Teach me  a Hymn
    That I can hum.
    Teach me all.
    That a child  should know.
    Teach me to walk in snow. 
    When the festive season is new.
    Teach me in the morning Dew.
    I know, my brain cells are too few,
    Just teach me that I should know.
    Peter pan, Robbin Hood, Rumbletilltiskin.
    If God to you is forbidden.

    Zvamunoita zvakatadzwa navatendi izvi.

    Zvokugadzira mari yechegumi zuva nezuva.

    Iyo musingakandi mundiro yechegumi.

    Yamunotambidza mutengesi  nebhodyera.

    Minwe mishanu yakabatanidza  mari nebhodyera.

    Zvokumwisana mate sevana vamai vamwe.

    Zvokudokerwa muchihunwa muri pamwe.

    Aa a a a ah! , Vakati vanomwa vakan'ora.

    Kana humambo hwe denga vachadongorera.

    Zvamunoita izvi  kudhakwa nezvinodhaka.

    Nemweya ivo vanodhakwa sezvidhakwa.


    Vasangana nemi voti muri Zvidhakwa.

    Sevanokupayi mari yokutanga mudhakwe.

    Madhakwa nekumumba hamusviki.

    Nyaya ndedzeuyo  akudhakisayi.

    NezvaJesu  vatenderi vanenge vatokanganwa.

    Rinozodoka zvaro zuva, vatotsamwa


    Vatenderi munodarireyi.

    Mbatya dzoyenda kukereke kupinda varidzi.

    Kunamata kwava kunamatwa.

    Minamato zvayangova  habhura-ka-dhabhura.

    Inga Jesu pachipiyaniso  Wakatambura.

     Chishuwo Chiri chokuti vhangeri  riparidzwe.

    Maivepiko pakamutswa Razaro, masikati machena?.

    Yakaendepiko waini yakabikwa naJesu pamuchato wekana.

    Vatenderi  muri vanyengeri ndazvivona.

    Inga mudzanga unotsva,

     nokutsvodwa nemumwe.

    Asi hausvutwi nemunhu mumwe.

    Moto wabatidza ndemumwe.

    Asi unotungidzawo dzimwe.

    Chivi here chakasakisa rodo mumoyo menyu rudzimwe??.

    Kana Kuti zvingwa zvishanu nehovembiri,

    Dzakasakisa  rwenyu Rudo rwuzvimbirwe.

    Zvamunoita izvi Zvidhakwa, vatenderi  vakazvikonewa.

    Kumwa nepambomwiwa nemumwe.

    Kuruma pamboruma mumwe.

    Kudya mundiro imwe.

    Mugere Panhu pamwe.

    Kukurukura dambudziko remumwe.

    Muchabatsira vana vavamwe.

    Chokwadi here ndiko kuita kwenyu.

    Kutengerana Doro vamwe vachitadza. 

    Kutengerana zvinwiwa kana kunze kwapisa.


     Nhayi  Zimbabwe,  

    Nyika yaTati,

    Ndinoyimbira iwe izimbabwe, handirevi  Ini.

    Ndiwe une vatenderi vazhinji, kupinda Zvidhakwa.

    Vhangeri zvoroparidzwa nevakadhakwa.

    Asi Nyika yadhakwa???.

    Zvamunoita.

    Zvakatadzwa naVatenderi.

    Ndozvireva ndoputika neshungu.

    Rangove Bundu Moyo, gararwa reshungu

    Chiregayi  ndizvinyarare ini mwana wemurungu.

    Mozoti  aitidadira  nechurungu.

    Zvakatadzwa,

    Failed pachirungu

    Kare Kare, long ago

    NaVatendi.

    We are sorry that we have been away for a few days. My poor Herman had a bit of a stroke after our delicious Indian dinner. Of course you all know that I lost the big wager. Herman had predicted an early appearance of the Lamont Palmer(or snake as many have referred to him as) character. I mistakenly, of course, thought he would take a few days longer to make a complete @$$ of himself. Herman was right. He is a psychiatrist and knows his subjects very well.

    It seems that a little girl on here was upset that someone referred to her privies this after she acted like she can hang out with the tough ones. She wasn't so tough, it seems.

    We have have so much work to do on here. So many poor souls suffering needlessly from mental health issues. Herman and I are your friends.

    I am so excited. Soon we will be interpreting the poem written by Sherry's soon to be ex-husband(The Bunny Benny) in extensive detail concentrating on disturbing personality disorders that come through a poem, like the Chokolat fondue poem. I am so excited! Oh you didn't know? Yes, yes they are separating. According to Mr. Palmer the little baby, the Blue Bird or Chatty Dreck or Angie will also be separating. It must be spring!

    Where's that pornographic poem about some lady shaving herself?Let's see. My wife comes home with Easter plush toys for our kids (something soft in a bag) and this psycho thinks my poem is about her private parts! Then she writes a disgusting poem that comments on the situation further. What a sicko! Get some help lady!
    And while you have the razor out, do your upper lip. Ovid's have very little tolerance for stupidity. Maybe I should have mentioned that.
