    Hi Stanley. I enjoy your lively mind and wish I'd come to your poems earlier... but here I am now. It does you credit, and all power and good health to you. Take care. Michael

    A renaissance man and wordman of impeccable wit. This is how a review of your work would read if it were written by me. I enjoyed all of your works. Thanks for your poetry Mr. Cooper

Linguistic Anguish

I suffer so with linguistic anguish
At corruption of our English language
Spouting double negative pollution
Ascertains no positive conclusion

There ain’t no sense, I have to say
In speaking in this kind of way
I seem to find it most confounding
Why double negatives remain abounding
