Hi all, may I just say that this is the best poetry community I have ever been part of. Are you moving to a new location?

Here is a small poem to convey my dissatisfaction at big G's decision.

"When G+ arrived we all jumped at the chance,
to join with Big G, our place in the stars

But perfect this relationship was not.
Change after change Big G stifled our flow.

Circle sharing was one thing to go.

The more that was taken
the less people cared

A community destroyed
who minds how we fare."

Can't believe the news that G+ is going. Some great times on here and met some wonderful people.

Good luck all :)

Tommy Cooper

A man who could eat his own pillow and still have room for one for the road.
Buoyed by the joy of many but continually pulled to the bottom by what the nourishment of that joy entailed.

Many have discovered this peril. The most monetarily successful among us are the worst hit.
Tommy made every exertion to crack the sternest grimace and succeeded, beguiling as his talent unfolded on the stage.

Escapism is the name of the game when your body and soul have given everything and so much more is required.
He ended his life in a crumpled heap in front of the audience who loved him so much.

They pulled him behind the curtain as the show continued... It was live TV you know.
His replacement was out from behind the curtain as soon as the emergency ads had finished.
