A Poem by Frieda P



Serial reader, 
vanquishes each poem in under a minute
no anguish in his surmise, 
must have found god or gotten wise
infers greatness in copy & paste
same old metaphors of grace
a notch above fluff's offense
used to spew disgust on cue
now he's the candy man,
cat let out of the bag...
purrfect timing

hahaha love the bullshit meter! This poem is so sassy! I love the name that you put to the BS reviewers, serial reader- makes them seem sinister and manipulative :) I can honestly say there isn't anything I dislike about this poem, it was clever and well written the whole entire way through! It's true, the best reviews are constructive, and point out the flaws in the piece. As writers, there is always room for improvement.

A wonderfully sassy poem to truly make your point here. My first read of the poem I wasn't sure about the last two lines, after reading them a few times I grew to like them, but I feel they need to be a separate stanza.

Very powerful words, certainly like an arrow whooshing through the air and penetrating all who watch in awe. I like your snarkyness (not exactly a dictionary word but the best I could find) and so direct. It does frustrate me when comments made are so fickle and superficial, but I often ask the reviewer why he/she feels that way about the poem... sometimes I don't even get a response. I refuse to accept that it's flattery or a stroke to my ego, because it's not! It's a waste of my time! Great way to express what many of us experience!

I liked this a lot. Most people do read or look at art like a drive by. The smaller font and quicker lines which lead us to the end of the poem is a great touch as well, it creates a thrill of escape much like...stealing. I enjoyed this a lot.

LMAOF, Frieda. Can you tell me, where I can find such a detector, in real life? It so help me, in sorting out those, trying to blow smoke up my butt. As I seem to be a poor judge of person, in letting the wrong person get close to me, as they hurt me.

If you want to know me, read my poetry, it's all in there. I am a mother of three sons (my finest moments) a sister, a survivor and a little bit crazy. I lost my beloved sister to suicide, so you'll.. more..
