Nonstop - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've been contributing here,
For more than four years nonstop.
And you believe you can arrive to lift and copy?
To see your name on top?
Because of something you wish to be given,
And not earned?
From which side of the Cosmos have you been dropped?

Nothing that I've got is going to be that easily taken.
And faking it for me,
Is not a creative appetite one eats or breathes....
With an ease to digest.
And stealing will only get you stagnation.
Eventually your plagiarism will establish its own identity.
When you keep regurgitating something you have not cooked.
