A Three Time Looser

Entered my poem three times today
Everyone just stayed away! Including
The Critics on hand, hours pass and still
I stand!
It's no longer a checklist I must say the
Double standards battle today!

This poem has been reported for abuse and is under review.

Letting the ego and the pride take over there sweetie! Remember Jesus' example and turn the other one. it happens on this site-often. Personally I've been in the pub watching the footie (soccer to you).  PS. If you are wondering what Jesus DID stand for I would say Love, Moderation, and Humility-which are also the 3 treasures of Taoism and major themes in Buddhism and other world religions. Rest assured, you are not forgotten-by me at least. XX

I cannot abide rudeness
I do not believe it is acceptable for anyone to act without consideration for others I only share 1 poem at a time for that reason

Words when crafted well are day driven knives.
The subject of the poem is not in line with the title.
This is seen because the poet put his emotions in the work, not allowing the innovation to flow.
My advice, review others' work and constructive critic them, by doing so; you will attract reviewers.

No she won't. The majority on this site are egomaniacs who are only interested in scoring points and putting out their own work-most of which is absolute twaddle.

Sorry to be pedantic but lose only has one 'o'. What you have written is loose, as in the opposite to 'not tight'. So it's 'loser', that you meant to say. By the way, you said you have appeared in Shakespeare, so presumably you know what an iamb is. Just a suggestion-if you want to develop as a poet develop your rhythm. As T.S Eliot said-you first have to learn the rules before you can break them.

Can I suggest an alternative version of "Three Time LOSER"?

"Entered my poem three times today

but everyone seems to have just stayed away

even the critics who are always on hand-

the hours go by and still here I stand.

No more it's a checklist

and so I must say

that the double standards

are battling today."
