    There aren't any cliques in poetry, are there?
    I mean, if a poem seeps into your soul
    you would definitely comment,
    love and support at destee is the goal.
    There aren't any cliques in poetry, right?
    When words so strong force you to utter, "Umph!"
    You wouldn't dis them because you heard
    the poet was a mu tha fu ka and mutter, "Humph!"
    There aren't any cliques in poetry, it's true.
    If the poet speaks to you, and tiptoes inside your head
    you would give him a ^5. Not get pissed because
    you didn't pen it first, secretly wishing him dead.
    There are no cliques in poetry,
    assure me that I'm not wrong.
    Let me know if the tune is beautiful,
    no one could keep you from singing the song.
    Sure, not all scribes will move you.
    Of course, you can't respond to it all.
    I know everyone has their favorites,
    But certainly more than a few poets enthrall.
    And it's not just the new poets either,
    perhaps they're just following what they see.
    You know I'm speaking the truth,
    so don't even try to get mad at me.
    I've checked myself, and will continue
    to do so. I'm so hard on myself, it hurts.
    So many have written in this same vein,
    aren't you tired of reading poetry alerts?

    There aren't any cliques in poetry, are there?

    Thank you for letting me know you're feeling this, Blue. Sometimes to come correct, you have to be direct.
    Clio you slipped in there while I was responding to Blue, so I'm editing this. Thanks for reading and responding in this way.
