Greetings dear readers:
As you have probably gathered, this is the second anthology of humorous poetry for the facebook group, 'I am Poetry'.
At first, a little information on our poetry group. This group, 'I am Poetry', was created in October 2013. The very first member being Bernard Harold Curgenven, who will be referred to in this book, as B.H.Curgenven, for obvious reasons. The second member was Ronnie van de Heever. We have since flourished, and have almost ten thousand members at present. We have some of the most famous writers in the world, and continue to grow on a daily bases.
Now, about the book content:
The first poems are from Bernard Harold Curgenven.
The poem 'Are You an authentic Author', looks at an age old problem of authenticity and copyright infringement. We are faced with this dilemma on a daily bases. With the availability of the media, such as the internet, our work is seen in every part of the world. Therefore people copy, and often steal from original writers, claiming all unpublished work as their own. Then we have so called 'ghost writers'. Some writers have became famous, by purchasing work from others. In most parts of the world this may not be illegal, however is it moral? The unknown writer could remain unknown for all time to come. We need to have a balance between fame and finance.
The poem 'His Fear of A Lady', takes a brief look at marriage, though this is no usual marriage, i assure you. The spouses live apart in fear. Imagine an obese wife, or a vampire spouse, who will happily bite you in your sleep!
Real Life can be so uncomfortable, and we only strive for better, be it only in a dream. Take a look at the ambition of Francine Messin, in her poem 'Real Life.'
How does the thoughts of a hypochondriac, turn one into an insomniac? This be told in Susan O'Reilly's poem, I'm Sick.
Imagine opening and shutting the gate from hell all day long. Take a look at this poem by famous author of horror, Patrick Royal. Here is a horror poem, with a touch of humor. Will you cry with fear or laughter?
'Time Travels', by Elizabeth Castillo, takes us into her past. What becomes of us, over the ages, through our different stages. Perhaps we should all stop for a moment, and venture into our past!
Arustamyan Anahit, better known as the phantom of poetry, is famous for untitled poems...
Enough said though. I know you will enjoy this book!
