Lumpy oatmeal makes me crazy!
Okay, hours have gone by and I told you I would be back. Another favorite poet is Balladeer. "Why, of course" you might mutter, "he taught you everything you know." Ummmm, not everything, but he has taught me a lot. But, that's not why I am writing now. We all know that Balladeer knows his schtick ... just as we all know that Balladeer is a real spam.
I am writing about him because he treats everyone with respect. He might go over the top sometimes politically, but I don't peek in on that forum often. However, no one can deny that he is not a man of conviction and that he is not passionate in his beliefs. I admire people who can articulate their thoughts in a debate, and Balladeer seems to hold his own quite well.
I am rambling (I do that, you know). I like Mike because he is witty, respectful, honest, funny and an extremely patient teacher. He has never patronized me in the years that he has worked with me. He is proud of the accomplishments of all of us who strive to become more knowledgable poets.
What can I say? I like Mike.
