    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.

    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

The Rejection Slip

all would-be poets, take note!
proofread that so-called poem you just wrote!
those who aspire for more Famous Days
please steer clear of these clichés:

so what if your heart
or dies?
hearts are ever in a state of perpetual disrepair
we don’t need you to tell us

who cares if your soul
or trounces? ...

Read the full of The Rejection Slip


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
