As silly as the one below. A bit repetetive. We got it after the first stanza or two. " So playful and fun to read?" What tema do you play on, Scotty? Eeeegads

    Cold shoulder, Frank. Cold shoulder. " So playful and fun to read?"

    The poem is still as silly as before. When it comes to my opinion rgarding poetry I don't bullshit. When Palmer brought up Wallace I looked into his poetry and found magic. I said so then and say so now. It is about the poetry, nothing else. Had the poem you posted been good I would have said so, regardless of who or what posts it!
