    God, she’s awful. It’s this doggerel which makes her “popular”. (Report) Reply

    You see, there is a difference between opinion and fact. Your post? Just an extremely poor excuse for an opinion.

    ..And you say,
    Where is the Halo around my Brain
    And I say,
    It's a work in progress
    Wait till you see
    That's me

    Je gagne 86 $ l'heure à la maison. J'ai été choqué quand ma voisine m'a dit qu'elle avait une moyenne de 95 $, mais je vois comment ça fonctionne maintenant. Je me sens tellement libre maintenant que je suis mon propre patron. C'est ce que je fais,

    Phenomenal woman and poets she was. (Report) Reply

    She's such a terrible wordsmith. So many places where I say, no, don't do that...and that's just what she does. And then her use of empty Latinate or Greek words (at least one in every poem) , rent from their etymological roots and just sounding stupid now. I hate every poem I have ever read by her.

    And yet she is a renowned poet, and you are not. If you don't like her writing style, that's fine; everyone has their own tastes. In my opinion, however, the way her poems appeal to so many people is a testament to how far she is from a terrible wordsmith.

    You are an ignorant idiot, a pompous prat and a flagrant fool.
