Copying From Internet

Copying From Internet

A Poem by Pestonjee_
"

A tribute to the master plagiarists I see in action daily

"

When your crooked quill goes broke and dry, on IV drugs you’re doped and high, it seems to be as we surmise, the dullards, love to plagiarise


When your words just cease and rest in peace, and all the net is yours to fleece, by golly, who recalls great bards long dead, so what the hell, just go ahead!


You pluck and pinch where greatness lies and steal the Ray's from Plath's sunrise, you filch great quotes to save the day and even dress like Hemingway


And lo behold let words be born, upon your page to leer in scorn, at fools who always come your way, to kiss your a*s in fervent sway


So like a dog upon a bone, you claim the words as all your own, just laugh at them from hidden shade, at all the fools that you have made


They are all neanderthalic buffoons and don't you know it!

 Bowing down  in homage to this plagiarising poet!

but i do wonder...how does this person put his or her head on the pillow at night and rest comfortably knowing that the words were stolen and passed off as his or her own words.
Sooner of later it will catch up...
People often ask me if i am worried being on a poetry site about getting my poems stolen and plagiarized.
I just tell them..."no, i know what i wrote, and if they want to pass my stuff off as theirs, it is on their conscience, so more power to them"----
i like this commentary and the way you presented it tongue-in-cheek...

Your cool approach is perhaps better than my more confrontational one. Thank you Mr. Jacob.

Lol! Just such dry wit in this one, monsieur Pestonjee! All joking aside, you have addressed another serious issue here. Plagiarists are such a low life blight on any artistic medium. Like leeches, they suck on the labours of others more talented and claim the glory as their own. Despicable creatures, and yes, they are prevalent in many forums. I am new here, but i am regretful that i will possibly soon encounter one of these people myself. Thank you for the morning chuckle.:)))

Thanks a lot Gee. :) Teehee
Plaigarism at any level and by any degree is to be deplored.

Interesting and well written lines, on a sin that so often goes both unnoticed and unpunished.

Beccy.

Thank you Dave 🤣
How smoothly they steal! And present to us as their stellar creation.
Beware yours might get stolen haha
You did write this piece in a rhythmic profound way. Its just not saying to condemn plagiarised work but lets the readers read well.

I would try if the clock ticks on some leisure hours, you’re welcome =)
Great rhythm in this write together with internal rhyme. It was a fun read about a serious topic. I mean if you are lazy and don't want to put the effort in, why not try your hand at copying :) They deserve all they get when they are found out and they usually are.
