Is it not possible to send magazine articles to this forum anymore? I tried, unsuccessfully, several times.

Reason? I was sick of seeing that My Mother Was A Margarine Fondler every time I opened the Forum page.

Merry Christmas.

Quote: Erskin Quint

a bit of a quandary.





That's odd, because that's exactly the genre I'd decided to name it - Quandary poetry!



Quote: Erskin Quint

Keep it up.





I'm going to.

I once went into a Greggs, ordered a Crocodile Sandwich, and told the serving wench to "make it snappy", but nobody laughed. I even had to change my order because she told me they didn't sell crocodile. I had a Corned Beef Slice instead.

Do you mean "you've got to shake a stick at it"?

That were a joke, that were.

Well, anyway, this is just a short one to tell you that I have two new poems out this week, The White Stuff, and Leave Them Alone.

I believe I am getting a 'feel' for this poetry lark now. I hope you enjoy them 'as much as you enjoyed the others'.

Tee hee.

Indeed, and a lovely story to warm the cockles of my heart.

I gave it five knuckles, and a shuffle for good measure.

Quote: Erskin Quint

I want to be an Arab is an acidic little piece which is trying to be aggressively anti-Islamic.




Not so. In my own, crappy way, I was trying to invoke the feeling of, 'what the plebs think of the 'Muzzies', but if you didn't get this, it means that I failed in my attempt.


Quote: Erskin Quint

There is here as ever a talent at work, a power of language and energy.



You old flatterer, you!


Quote: Erskin Quint

I feel that using 'shite' detracts from the piece, being a lazy usage.




Goddammit! It was just about the only word I liked in the whole poem!


Quote: Erskin Quint

see Ogden Nash, I recommend him




No need. I have all of his albums.


Quote: Erskin Quint

Of course, not all Arabs are Muslims, much less Fundamentalists. Some are Christians. This ought to be borne in mind




Consider it borne.


Quote: Erskin Quint - lest the piece be seen as mere half-baked abuse.




I love the word 'lest', and am grateful to you for reminding me of it.

This is exactly the kind of constructive criticism I was hoping for, and will try to learn from it over the next few minutes as I create some new poetry.

Ever your servant,

Moys

PS, the last stanza of the bird poem was meant to symbolise the end of the bird's life, and the pain it feels as it considers its role in the cosmos. Again, I feel I have come up short in my efforts.

I will try harder.

Yes, that's a good idea, E Quint. I'll try that whilst working on stuff that I intend putting in my new anthology.

I hope to have it ready for the Christmas rush.


By the way, what did you hink about I Want To Be An Arab?

And my latest release I Feel Like A Bird.

I've just 'published' a poem, Erskin, which you may want to peruse.

It's currently being scrutineered to ascertain whether or not it's fit for children. Let me know your criticisms, if you have any.

I think we have a Poet Laureate amongst us, if I'm judging correctly!

All of Mr Erskin Quints poems are of a very high standard, a standard I have set all by myself, I might add. I especially like the one about the bishops.

I will be posting some poems of my own soon, when I have writed them.

Here's one I write earlier:

This is the best poem I have thus far read in this thread.

I think it only goes to show that repeated calls for a Poetry Corner of TheSpoof.com are fully justified.

Love,

Moys

Sonorously, or noise-capable, often rowdily, or, usually, simply 'like yodelling'.



I hope that clears it up.
