Note: On 24 March 2015 this poem was selected as Member Poem of the Day. This was the first of five of my poems to be selected.
Thank You, Poem Hunter!

Another Note: at one time this poem was # 248 on the top 500 poems, but I have deactivated it several times to see which other poems Poem Hunter would put in its place, and the last time I checked, it had dropped completely off the top 500.

    I love a unique poem with the clever unfolding of thought, And a ride where quick turns throw the passengers back and forth with excitement. Well done Kim. (Report)Reply

    Wish you were asleep for a little longer and could see me at some poet's feet.
    It's a tribute to PH.

    Well I do think Bri Edwards protests too much, but he is an extravagant guy. Clever poem and nice to see some of my favorite poets recognized as well. Keep up the good work! (Report)Reply

    well, before reading the poem, i have read some of the comments. maybe you don't need another? ! :) bri

    i'll forgive you for not including me (1) BECAUSE i don't think we had 'met' yet, and (2) because of THIS:



    Maybe........
    .. When Hell Freezes Over!

    I may, one day, be in PH Hell,
    but not in PH Heaven...........;
    you know damn well!
    Though my poems I do leaven,
    you'll never catch the Bri.....
    in this or ANY Heaven! !

    ====================================
    AND i didn't even know the verb definition of leaven before i wrote this!

    2 leaven
    verb

    : to make (something) less serious and often more exciting

    : to add leaven to (bread, dough, etc.)
    leav·ened leav·en·ing
    \ˈlev-niŋ, ˈle-və-\

    bri :) cute poem, Kim.
