The original post is poetry.

Just like the added file, is art.

I know it is art because it is titled so.

Patti, I got an honors degree in writing (English) at the most exclusive college in the country, won first place in a national English contest, had degrees, certificates and honors from four postgraduate institutions in three countries, studied with some of the finest writers of our generation, and wrote at a high level for forty years and more.  You have often said you know nothing about poetry.  I obviously do.  So your two years of incomplete studies entitle you to pontificate about how I know nothin'?  I think not, darlin' ... especially since Shakespeare would clearly agree with Mark and me on this one.  So go quote your nursery stories all you like, but give up on this one.  
Thank you very much.

Yes, sir!

I see clearly now. this is poetry. it is meaningful.

I thought I couldn't write poetry, but I see anything written and placed here for review IS in fact a poem. I had no idea.

I thank you for showing me the errors of my ways. I am overawed by your vast and superior knowledge and can see my lack of education is clearly putting me at a disadvantage.

I will quietly go and compose some blithering idiot nonsense and post it here for all the world to see.

Yeah, well, you're a twittering airhead who spouts nonsense.  Not about the poem, you're  entitled to disagree there, but by calling me a pompous hypocrite.  If you want to do that feel free, and go to bloody hell.  Have I made myself clear?

I never said you're a blithering idiot, I quoted you that you know nothing about poetry and I compared my credentials to your lack of the same.  What about that do  you find insulting, you twittering airhead?

I agreed that you were better educated than me, why does this make you angry?

But we are hijacking this thread from the meaningful discussion about the brilliance of this poem.

that is not a poem, Jo.  well, I mean LMAO.  Patti's is a poem, sort of, and it's hilarious.  There, you see Patti?  I can read.

But that is just why Victor's also very funny poem is a poem.  In fact, it's probably one of the best he's ever written.  Word for word, it's the best.

especially if the title is exactly what you see in the header:
