    Think I'll look up the top thirty of the so-called top poets and post " You show great skill and promise" on their most recent poem. See how many reply.

    So now we can look forward to a myriad of forum posts from the front-page carpet bombers of old, marketing and self-promoting their statistical rankings. When will PH start promoting quality, rather than quantity?Never, as that does not bring in the revenue of the advertisers.

    If you can
    stand on sharp edge
    a blade awaits
    your foot-tips to stand you alone

    another wonderful world
    sure will show you
    claps greeting your efficiency..

    Savory Deal(revised)

    Contact the broker of special deals
    and ask her to procure a savory one
    for me. See if there may be an advantage
    were I to acquire two, instead of one.
    Make sure she knows all the lurid details
    like my age, as I am seventy and some.
    I want to feel secure that this deal,
    once sealed, will not be hindered by anything,
    or anyone. I will tell you once again,
    I want no limits on what I can
    and cannot do, but I have no preference
    if the hair is straight or curled. Don't you see?
    We live live in a mad, mad world.

    Go forth and pay the asked for sum,
    as I can no longer, control this want.
    We must schedule the imam, an annoying
    cost, just to veil the deed with sacred rites.
    Ensure that what I am paying for
    is not older than twelve. The eyes must be
    blue or green and the skin as fair as
    what has rarely seen the sun. I will
    provide for her needs once she is in my
    hands. Most importantly, she must be
    pure and by no other man eyed or held.
    No pity in this world for any child,
    soon to be felled.

      Hard to believe but it's reality. At least children could bring more money by selling than female body. Not particularly any country-picture, it's globally happening everywhere where is disturbance ... more
