To Joseph Pedulla: Here's one that might be better suited to your intellect and Chris's. It goes: Twinkle twinkle little star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high Like a diamond in the sky.....

To Chris Robideaux: Dear Chris, I stopped by the site to read a few poems and, in so doing, read again your comment on the so-called poetry of Billy Collins. I have to tell you that your comment is perhaps the most intelligent and articulate assessment of this man's poor excuse for poetry that I have ever read! It gives me such joy to see someone out there who understands what a fraud this guy really is! Keep up the good work! Never flinch!
