Great, thanks, Gilad. "Adjustment" it will be.

Does that old word jumble have the word ‘adjustment’ in it?
Try writing new poetry for a change will.
Jim can come up with several new poems everyday while you post the same bs you’ve been posting for decades.
Stretch your mind and write something new.

Actually, most of those poems Jim's been posting are repeats (look them up), but I see nothing wrong with that.

That’s a lie will.
He and NG write a lot of fresh, new poetry constantly.
And theirs consist of more than just a catchy title. Their poems have substance. And are readable.

Only 2 of them, but since he doesn’t repost his poetry here 50 times a year ,they were new to ME.
But you’re unable to write anything new. That takes talent.

Mr. Dockery, your world of poetry is confined to past conquests and walking around town. They show little in the vast world around you. You're stunted as a writer. Pizza delivery and getting laid does not make decades of poetry.

Mr. Rochester, your poetry runs in a similar pattern of your own navel gazing.

Actually, it's quite the opposite. Jim's poetry is usually based on his observations of others.

Perhaps so, but I'm sure Mr. Rochester will not deny that most of the poetry he's posted here have been repeats.

Again, not that I have any problem with that.

You're evading the point.

ME challenged you to compose a *NEW* poem for the upcoming Sunday Sampler (as opposed to finding a way to plug the word "adjustment" into a poem you'd written 20 years ago).

I’ll have NG do a fact check on that.
Write a new poem about life right now. Or don’t you have the capacity to do that will?

Since we compile the official SS poetry list, it is impossible to skip and ignore your poems. We would think that you would want to put your best effort forward for the Sunday Sampler, which would include polishing it, rereading and revising it, and making sure that it makes sense, has a point, and is actual poetry.

Perhaps he meant to say:

"I think my poetry is damned good, actually. Otherwise I wouldn't post it."

Thanks, DR, for your clarification. We would parse Will's sentence as:

"Actually. Of course, I think? My poetry is damned. Good, or else. I would'nt post it."
