Thanks, Guys! - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

In search of crime and criminals
I muster my subliminals.
Write poems, simply, on the run
and wish I had a loaded gun.
Since time is really of the essence
I can't attend those forum lessons.
To those of you who wrote opinions
about my poems, and the minions
who love the daylight out of me
I do accept all flattery!
Yet time is short, thus please excuse
my seeming lazy and obtuse
neglect of those who took the time
it is not meant to be a crime.
I thank you all, please read some more
the stuff I send from distant shore.

    I thank you for this poor excuse
    for ratting on your reading dues
    Your work is full of clever use
    of language and poetic hues

    But running while you're writing
    though it's possibly exciting
    is a pretty slack defence
    of your non-commenting stance

    Yet, your honesty impresses
    so I'll dropp the second guesses
    And now and then I'll have a look
    Within your massive poem book

    Don't mention it, Herbs. Just finish sorting whatever it is you're sorting, and then come back again (fully) .
