Do Not Pander To Me Your Poems.
Do not pander to me your poems.
Do not solicit my attention.
Do not send me formulaic messages.
Do not ask for my votes, comments, and time.
Do not ask me to read the same poem over and over again.
Do not send me messages with misspellings and bad grammar,
(Your art is language for crying out loud!) .
I love you poetry, I dig your thoughts,
I love your alliterations, your pentamic musings.
This pandering is beneath you.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I wrote this after receiving the same message from a certain individual multiple times asking me to read their poem, vote, and comment. The first time we conversed, I did just that, but became irritated when they sent me the same message asking me to do exactly what I had just done. I love the community on this site, but I do not like the way that some beg for attention. Let your poem speak for itself.
