    let's love,
    no matter how many skies
    may fall, and
    should not make
    our night,
    full of regrets.

    The Black Fly......look ma, no shame!

    The Black Fly

    On a rocky hill, outside the walls
    of the infamous old city,
    a black fly lands on the chest
    of a broken man.

    It inches towards the edge
    of a crimson stream,
    and begins to suck
    the life of this forsaken soul.

    Once the stream turns clear,
    it lays its eggs
    for the generations
    of maggots, yet to feast.

    Acker, tell your troll " friend" to stop using my name and I'll ignore your lousy poetry like I've always done. Or don't, I enjoy making you look like a fool anyway. You probably like it though, you masochistic goofball.

    I don't know why you waste your time, " Monty, the Mule" . You are obviously biased when it comes to my poetry, which makes it personal for you. I have nothing personal against you. I just don't see any good poetry in what you write. I can never forget that you have been flogging your dead horse for over 40 years. You should be a bit further ahead. When a retired professor calls me a mule, I would stop and think about it and not dismiss it so lightly. First you are referred to as Big Bird, and now " Monty the Mule" , something ain't right! ! ???

    Check the list of unbiased critics, and you will see that you are not on it.

    What else are you going to dare me to post, Plumface? As you can see I have no shame in posting my poetry.
    Now I would like to ask Sherrie von Gonzalez to post her Tribute To Momma, and for Monty the Mule to post his Tribute to Alan Prell.
    Please, I would love a good laugh.
