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.

    I wouldn't sweat it.
    I'm sure they don't...iip
    The cacher and the rye
    like mom's back then.
    Or the summer of fourty eight then nine,
    my gosh the censored
    blind back then. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
