Laventhere Purple - Poem by Francis Duggan
In the World are many plagiarists something I have always realized
But that one should copy one of my offerings and put his or her name to it
to say the least came to me as a surprise
A person with the pen name of LavenThere Purple a plagiarist of the big World out there
Copied one of my offerings and put their name to it my 'Racism Is Around Me Everywhere'.
His or her title for it 'Racism All Around' the body of the work almost word for word was copied down
How can LavenThere expect to become famous if the one he or she has plagiarized happens to be a stranger to renown
He or she should have plagiarised one quite famous some plagiarists in their ambitions quite small
The LavenTheres of the bigger World out there the masses do never recall.
To plagiarize the work of anyone not something to be proud of some are small in their own small way
The Wordsmith Trade they do discredit and that seems a sad thing for to have to say
Without even bothering to ask me Laventhere to one of my offerings put his or her name
Here is one who will never become famous plagiarists never do know of fame.
Towards LavenThere I feel no anger though I refer to that person as he or she
Since I did not bother to find out the gender of one who does seem quite ordinary to me
Though 'tis said that imitation is the greater form of flattery with such I cannot say I agree
Plagiarists as well as lacking in honor are without originality.
