Boot+Kitty=Poetry in motion
This is a terrific poem, Biskie! I'm especially gladdened at how it came out.
Welcome to the Forums. A few things you should know about posting in here so that you are not led astray. There is a rascally scalawag named "Toerag", who lives up to his name. Unlike me, he is NOT a saint and you must never let him get too close! Oh sure, he IS my friend, but I have to look out for the world, yanno.
There is also another poet named Balladeer. He is smoothe, the consummate poet. He, too, can be a rascal, but I doubt he will ever be a scalawag, as he is very saintly. Don't trust him, either! Only trust me.
BTW - both of them are actually pretty terrific guys, but I must never let them know this, as they are prone to basking in the adulation of their followers.
As for the rest of the poets in here... I doubt you will find a more loving and supportive group of people on any other website. You MUST chat with Nan sometime to get an historical perspective on why this site was created and why it is truly a great place to post your poetry.
I hope Kevin and Scott learned from their lesson. As the epitaph goes, "We progress through life in stages, each delimited by a lesson. Until we learn the lesson, we cannot move on to the next stage." From your poem I think it is safe to conclude, you have passed another lesson.
I think there's a poem in that epitaph that is waiting for me. Perhaps this should be a challenge for others, too.
