July 2017's " All-Male "-Showcase Of Poems Of & For Poem Hunter Poets ….[ A Selection By Bri, Of Poems For Your Enjoyment; Read Or Not! ] - Poem by Bri Edwards
June's "All-Female Showcase" is done; it's even had some readers!
Now my ‘job' begins: to find ‘Poems-as-Good-by Males'. No cheaters.. …….are allowed!
As best as Bri can tell, the "females" are females and "males" are all males.
But, online, who can tell for sure? Relying on PH names OR ‘pics' sometimes fails,
So now I'm soliciting poems, from "Males", for my current consideration.
I'm still wanting less than 30 lines each, but there're no other classifications.
Limericks, Free Verse, Sonnets, and others are welcome. Good grammar is a plus,
but, though typos ‘and' misspellings jolt me a bit, I'll try to not raise (too much) fuss!
I hope more are reading at least some of the Showcase …..than evidence, to me, suggests.
But I know no one twists my arm(s) to do this each month, and I assure you I'll lose no rest …..
if someday I learn that only about half a dozen members ever take more than a little peek;
in the meantime I'll tell myself that this ‘make-work' keeps my mind fit, though that argument is WEAK!

post script aka p.s.:
IF i don't forget, i shall include ONE 'Female' POEM in July. in June, i inadvertently failed to include a poem by my PH friend Lyn Paul.
i guess since her last name 'Paul' is the same as some guys' first
name, AND her first name is one 'n' short of the male name 'Lynn', as in Lynn W. Petty, sneaking Lyn's poem into an 'all-male' showcase will
be easy! !
