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.

The title appeals to....
The content appeals to....
Whoever bumped this 'poem' deserves to be boiled in oil. 
To live, with gentle but cunning deceit, and accept the consequences, is the destiny of every man.

Please, add some rose pebbles?  Thank you. And don't over heat the oil.
