    It was good to read your poem about Thomas Chatterton, despite his amazing talent he is not known by many people. I would be interested to know how he came to your attention and what prompted you to write this poem?

    I enjoyed readng your poems and I admire your skill and mastery of the art of poetry, having your own unique style. You write clearly and make your point without the prolixity of other poets, that so often leaves the reader lost in a literary maze. You have class, depth, profound content in your poetry, and your writing
    is amazingly creative.

    I take trouble with all of my poetry, and if you read 'Buzzard' again properly you will see that I have not confused the buzzard with some other bird. The poem is accurate in every respect and I trust you will be a little more careful when you try to be an expert.
    The buzzard does kill prey in the manner described in the poem, and yes I know he is a lazy bird, but he is not that lazy.

Best Poem of Sidi J. Mahtrow

A Mullet Is Not A Fish? ?

So said the smart talk back in 1916.
For an out-of-work lawyer pickings were lean.
For clients; some local fishermen
Had their day in court, once again.

Tho th' lawyer served without recompense
He needed to prove to the judge their innocence.
Not guilty was the verdict to be won
Of fishing during the closed season.

These six young commercial fishermen
Were known to sell fish through thick and thin.
They had been caught fair and square
And summoned before the judge to appear.

It could not be disputed
That the fishermen had mullet ...

Cept'n when are feral, as n dog and ct stray
