Forumalgia - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Human nature is what it is.
Although hers is as bad as is his.
In the forum you'll find
those who stab from behind
and they give themselves titles like wiz.

They'll accuse of the grossest of sins
and they post it with shit-eating grins.
The intent is to harm
while all dressed up in charm
it is sad though that nobody wins.

    Herbert - another little gem from your witty little pen. The subject (for me) is immaterial. The poem is, as usual, stylish and as bitey as a good Stilton. Glad you're still around. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    Herbert, excellent limerick...and a very up to day subject matter. Unfortunate, though, it is. I had no idea, until, a little bird told me about the forum...to go read it..
    What fantastic revelations!
    You have written, yet, another gem of a limerick, filled to the brim with truth!
    Always,
    Theo

    You will draw the wrath of the Kane now for this bit. How dare you or anyone try to be original. I personally like your writing but what do I know I shovel shit for a living like every other poor bloke. (Report)Reply
