Following Laurie Van Der Hart - Poem by Linda Bella Wassermeister

Laurie Van Der Hart, bless her heart,
is a fine lady well worth following.

Her poems have entertained me
ever since I first joined this site.

Her insight into the world
is fascinating and unique.

Her poems are like no others
that I have encountered here.

I have always been intrigued by Africa,
and that is where our Laurie was born.

She loves the continent of her birth,
can tell you about all the animals
and birds that live there.

Laurie hates war. She has seen it
firsthand and abhors it with a passion.
That's why she is at odds with Poem Hunter.

The ads that PH superimposes over
her poems show tanks shooting people.
That was too much for gentle Laurie!

She has deactivated all of her poems
except for the last one that she wrote
which is called "Deactivated! "

I told you that she is worth following.
I am thinking of following her.
Today I deactivated about forty poems.

    Yesterday I deleted 40 or 50 poems. I now have 62 remaining. My kidneys have shut down and they can do nothing for me. I probably won't live the rest of the week, so thank you, Poem Hunter friends. It's been fun. I love you all! (Report)Reply

    I'm so sorry. Your poetry has the same effect on me as Laurie's has on you. Please, please reconsider. This site is a wonderful one to air poetry. If one is disturbed by ads use another app. For, example, Duck Duck. It's ad free. (Report)Reply
