Lord Labak Das

Fraud Poets

Just faking names
to make up numbers
to get full marks
and good comments
begging people to vote for them
no shame or embarassment
these are not poets but frauds
is my honest assessment

Comments about Fraud Poets by Lord Labak Das

    LLD,

    It's a shame if this is really happening. However, I'm sure that true poetic voices will always shine out.

    Cheers, Frank

    A topical poem that's right on the nail. Everyone getting 10s, begging for votes. It simply creates a false heirarchy on the site. And indeed, there already is one. It seems to work by issuing a sackful of comments to het a crisp bag full back.
    Regards
    Steve

    lord, ther's some tomfoolery everywhere. you don't buy it and that's great. to see the wood from the trees - in poetry; what's good, what reviles; wheat from chaff; and to know the difference
