You Stay All Up In My Stuff - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why do you stay all up in my stuff...
As if to nurture from my thoughts,
To take and twist.
Where are those of your own?
Do you have any independent,
Within you that sit?

Why do you do this?
To prove what and to whom?
You should have a lot of space in your head,
To give your own thoughts room.
Why do you stay all up in my stuff...
To leave others believing you can think.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A writer knows his/her work. And when it is plagiarized by others.
Especially a writer who has been committed to developing a style
that has taken years to develop. This is not a sign of flattery shown.
It is an honor to have others read a writer's work. However...
theft is theft. And not complimentary at all. 'You Stay All Up In My Stuff' is my submission to acknowledge those who 'assume' their 'misdeeds' are hidden. they are not!
