My observations during my short time
here at this poetry forum are that there
is without a reasonable doubt to much
cozening being committed by authority.

It would be appropriate for you to back up your accusations if you wish this to be discussed and taken seriously. As it is written, it is argumentative, and lacking in substance. Since I, for one, would like to know what it is that has caused you to make this statement, it would nice if you would defend this.

Although this is getting pretty old.


But now the animal is in pain...
And now it's starting to rain...
But I'm still the same.

Someone explain to me what "cozening" means?

Are we implying that authority is like a
clique?  Or what?   I really would like to
know what the writer is saying or implying
without giving any examples that are more
easily understood,  that some might reply to
the statement made.

Taken from a dictionary....

\Coz"en\ (k?z"'n), v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Cozened} (-'nd);
p. pr. & vb. n. {Cozening} (-'n-?ng). ] [From cousin, hence,
literally, to deceive through pretext of relationship, F.
cousiner.]
To cheat; to defraud; to beguile; to deceive, usually by
small arts, or in a pitiful way.

Short time for you under this name? [This is a perhaps on my part.] Yes.  I would guess it is your guess that you may not know what you are talking about.

Cozening, no.

Explain your question, and we will be able to give you answers you deserve.

Short time? Isn't that a little disingenuous, Glenn? Methinks thou doth protest overmuch.

My observation has been that banned Members who sneak in the back door inevitably surface with the same colors that got them banned the first time.

Seems to me, that the one doing the cozening is the author of the post....

Thank You Ron for the revelation....Now I
am in tune....
