    To the witty man that cracked me up by stating...'perversion isn't a hobby, it's a lifestyle!

    Bloody brilliant! Brutally honest, cynical yet strangly upliting outlook that is so well expressed. Hands up to a poetic genius! (btw, i'm new at this, so if you wanna give me some tips...)

    Just checked out your work again. I am fishing for something new.You amplify my lack of talent. I dig your style, look forward to reading your poems in the future. I want to invent a drink and name it after you, too bad pink squirrel is already taken.

    You are amazing, wild, sharp, witty, edgy, now, subtle, succinct, even lovable, and dammit talented. Now I know why I hate you.

    I know I’ve commented here before, but I need to again:
    Many of your poems have humor, some the blunt truth,
    In the case of Christine, amazing fragile beauty! Always
    Continue to express your vision, Jake!

    a. jacob, Thanks for the advice on my poem, I've made a change in the verse you suggested and I believe it works well. I like the way you use rhyme particulary in 'The Rejection Slip'. I see you are from Philadelphia...I grew up there and still work in the city. Thanks again for the advice and keep on producing poetry.
    Kenneth

    Wow! Such an imagination. I enjoyed almost everything of yours in this site. It's left me craving for more. I'm espescially impressed with Burelesque Haiku, Big Easy, and Fingerprints. Theyu're my favorite. Write on, Jake!

Best Poem of Rev. Dr. A. Jacob Hassler

Geezer Poets

geezer poets with your guns ablaze
who pathetically pine for your glory days

who shoot down young poets at every whim
who burn their every poem, every prose, every hymn

who would curse a young poet in your final gasp
dropping your weapon from your weakening grasp...

geezer poets, you know who you are
no one gives a damn about your fallen star

and when dementia renders you unable to think
of which ends your lousy pens diffuse your stupid ink

a young poet will use your rifle's butt
to pound the tired lid of your coffin shut

Read the full of Geezer Poets

Lignano

those sweet summer days
we would walk hand-in-hand
swim together in the sunlight
and write our names in the sand

now the sunshine has disappeared
all the skies are gray
i walk alone and watch the waves
wash our names away
