Publicly I take this opportunity,
To apologize to PoemHunter.com for submitting a poem...
I recently had written that was depicted as offensive,
With sexual content that is opposed to their guidelines.
I did not 'intend' to be offensive as much as depict,
A world that has become too accepting and disrespectful.
And, as a writer I admit, taking it to the limits of tolerance...
Was/Is irresponsible. And I thank PoemHunter.com for allowing
All of us who do write such a fine a website,
to submit our expressions. And for the many years I have gained
support and a 'notoriety' of sorts, I can only thank Poemhunter
for this.

Again, I apologize to PoemHunter.com and to those who found
my sexually 'over-the-top' submission offensive.

Best Wishes only do I have for all of you.

    Or the summer of fourty eight then nine,
    my gosh the censored
    blind back then. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
