Arrogant, haughty
Minds filled with filthy
Vile insolence

Shameful, provisional
Skulk in camouflaged
Hideous ‘victimology'

I disagree somewhat. I've written only one poem (I plan to start writing more) and it delves into the severe depression and brain fog I've dealt with most of my life, and my dissatisfaction with most of the drab, lifeless jobs I've had at corporate chains. I was being completely honest, I wasn't looking for sympathy. Nobody on here actually know who I am so what good does sympathy in a comment do for me? I asked for constructive criticism, and I got a bunch of sympathy and people advertising their own poems (my pet peeve) , but I would rather have had criticism on the craft on poem-writing and how well my poem flowed etc. Don't be so quick to judge. The one rule about poetry is that there are no rules.

John, I wrote this poem about the nastiness and feuding on the Poemhunter forum in 2007, not about comments on individual poems. Poemhunter has recently disabled/removed the forum. The pleas by poets to read their poems started to appear as PH expanded and it is an effort to not get lost in the plethora of poets/poems. The pleas bother me as well but I can understand why. However, I don't read the poems of poets desperate to be read. Thank you for taking the time to read my poems and for your comments. It is much appreciated.
