    We have lost a True mother, she is such an example and a great poetess.

    Hey, which nitwit decided that Robert Frost, although a good poet, was ANY match for Maya Angelou! ? If anybody's with me, let's all help Maya reclaim her rightful spot on the top of the top 500 poets list.

    It's a very simply said poem.

    this automatic android audio reading thing... is miserable. it's the stupidest thing i've ever seen. it's like serving a rare top sirloin steak in a mcdonalds burger wrapper. it's like listening to gershwin in a chuck e cheese ballpit with 10,000 screaming toddlers.

    this is ridiculous.

    this form of idiocy and complete oblivious bad taste hurts poetry.

    this website which at first seemed like a usable relevant resource... now i only wish to see it banned. on a medium such as the internet where the updatable content is 99.9% trash, this website is firmly in those ranks.

    not a gem.

    just more ruinous waste.


    imagine if a person such as myself opens multiple tabs to chance read multiple poems. consider the resulting cacophony as twenty poems are automatically begun to be read by android voices. this is insane. why is it automatic? I understand some people are miserable souls with no taste... but why would you force that on everyone else by making it automatic? if a person wants trash, fine... let them click their way into the void. but trash shouldn't be forced upon us.

    and why the generated android voice. poetry is a passion. a person with passion would have read the poems themselves. not used this disgusting fake 1989 computer voicing.

    have some common sense.

    be sensible.

    disable the automatic feed.

    or better yet... get rid of this altogether.

Human Family

I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.

Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.
