The Difference

..between a narcissist and a psychopath
is that a psychopath will steal your money,
but a narcissist will steal your money
then help you look for it

Re: Anti-Trump Day 2060

Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of protected attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Re: Two Thousand and Fifty [V5 13 June]

That's because of one thing. People click on a poem based on the number of comments. There are six by you alone. Artificially inflated. Your leg humping is embarrassing.

Re: A Warning to the Unbeliever

I remember one Indian lady saying in a forum, I must get with the modern trend about speaking of homosexuality. She turned her back on her own faith to accommodate her being in a liberal poetry forum. See how insidious sin is, it makes right wrong, and wrong right. Another poet said you are pushing ...

Re: Big Band Theory V 2

I'm at the point here of not knowing. The more I add, the less the title makes sense. I'll take your suggestions though in 3rd stanza. Thanks so much Bob

Re: Big Band Theory V 2

Your critique of the original made me want to dp better . That's the point. Bernie was that way. I sure miss him.

I may not be quite done. Most of my stuff, I never revise. I see no resolution to the change of tense

Thanks a ton Bob. I made a few more edits

Big Band Theory V 2

Ten years before Goodman and Dorsey saw light, the world was cold as the bootleg five cent beer they sell down at the Cotton Club. It's early and the joint is quiet as a paid- off cop. The odor of reefer and Pomade mingles with the smell of sweat. Seventeen horns and a rhythm section, Lena Horne cou...

Poetry and Free Speech

The below poem written in 1976 sparked near riots in the U.K. . I post it because one of our members said that as poets, we ought to respect freedom of speech.

Re: A Warning to the Believer

January 11, 1927 The great Ghandi said, " I like your Christ but not your Christianity." He read the bible daily, studied it. See, anyone can claim Christianity. The people who controlled India and exploited her did. Ghandi said Christians are the most war-like people . The bible *never* teaches tha...

Re: Love's Arrival

On second thought, cut the last line. It's redundant to the title. We get it with honeymooners about to check into a motel. Really wonderful poem. My 1st nom for IBPC

Bob. I thought about more detail before I wrote it. I had hoped the metaphor would carry the poem. Thank you.

Big Band Theory

A finger huge as God stabs the air, Cab Galloway kicks it all off with "Hi De Ho Man". Cops don't come 'round here. The color of blood is black under moonlight, pungent odor of reefer mingles with Pomade; the first building blocks of the Cotton Club. Seventeen horns and a rhythm section, Lena Horne ...

Re: Burning Man

Bob, it's a take on 2 urban legends. Near death experiences and spontaneous human combustion.
It's not you. As,a kid. I used to chase smts down and
burn them using the sun and a magnifying glass Fucked up, I know
But to those ants, I was God
I changed the wording .Thanks for the comments
