Hey mark, how are you?
Just a well-read punk peasant

Going to church makes you a christian as much as standing in a garage makes you a car!

I'm confused.

Are we dealing with Jan/Janet or Jan and Janet? Pen is right--there is a rule about bumping up from the dim and distant past. I also want to point out that we often have had problems with new members who post a poem an hour and don't critique anyone else's stuff. Maybe never even read it. So comment til you are ready Pen.

And please excuse the hijack Jan/Janet :) :)

I think all three - I'm guilty of bumping poems in the past but they haven't been mediocre, or mine for that matter.  And yes, Linda, you're right, Pen is conforming to a seldom-seen newbie ideal. Thanks for the example.

One of my favorite poems. Written by a very talented writer...... and a  very dear friend....    jt

Unfortunately it's also extremely cheesy - a Hallmark moment best forgotten and certainly not worth immortalising in print or on-line.
