    If poets, bereft of script or speech, pen, pencil or paper, quill or ink, silenced and mocked by those who pay them tribute, could otherwise convey what their silent thoughts expressed, their Chomsky-like ‘colorless green ideas [that] sleep furiously’ unexpressed expression would not only be syntactically correct, but would also be of great semantic relevance to the field of mathematical linguistics. Go figure!

    Im a party pooper you'll say but how does this person afford to showcase hundreds of poems? AT KARL: DO YOU OWN STOCK IN THIS SITE?

      Mr. Karl C. Folkes, I'm curious why you don't enter your work. Although I'd love the opportunity to argue a few of your beliefs into a provable perspective, I will concede your mastery of the science of poetry is undoubtable. Have you tried clever humor? I just really want to vent about this site and the people who run the contest, it's a sham at best and degrades this art we were born with.
