A poem, How could anyone treat me this way?

So this warning is for you.

I am so hurt, I'm hurt to the core

Bigezine didn't steal my work

It's like they slammed the door

In my face and left me so blue

I searched their site

And didn't find a clue

I thought perhaps they would like a Haiku, a Rictameter, or a Senryu

I 'reckon they don't like poetry

Who knew?

I'm still hoping they find something of mine to snatch

'Cos several Hubbers

Are just dying to catch

The thieves who have no talent of their own

If and when they find them

Listen for a pitiful groan

So this is a warning to you low-life crumbs

Stealing writer's work

Makes you all dirty bums

So don't come lookn' for anymore hubs to steal

You'll get caught

And believe me it will be a BIG deal

Prison walls are lonely at night

That's where you'll be

After a bloody fight.

Love it! I simply can't imagine the type of person who thinks this is okay! It boggles my mind that there are people who can justify this sort of thing. Great job my friend!

Wonderful poem. This makes me so mad. I was kind of offended that they didn't take any of mine, until I found two of mine on there. Now I wish they hadn't taken them. It just sucks. Be glad they didn't take any of yours.

Way da go Ruby, you took your guns to town with this one. Maybe even scared the Big Ezine vermins into their holes whence they crawled out of. Yes indeed Karma has a way of biting back and it will. Well expressed now calm down, I don't want your blood pressure going over the top. Loved the video, Johnny is the man..

Plagiarism makes me sick. As writers we pour our hearts and souls into the written word, looking for some recognition surrounding our expressions. Then, out of nowhere some unscrupulous scoundrels feel they can simply snatch up our blood, sweat and tears and call it their own. It really is a despicable act to plagiarize.

Hi Ruby

I like the way you got the Plagiarism message across. Ezine website has been known for doing this for about 2 years. Personally, the best solution would be for the website to be shut down - but I'm not sure that's possible.

Also, I like Marcoujor's comment about singing a Country song about the issue. I'll play the Guitar. :-)

Hey-hey-hey, sorry I am late. I had to fix the straps of my piano-accordion... Now, let's go, let's to the March of the Angry Hubbers, let's go get those sunoffe-monkeys @ Bigezine-dot-criminals. Let's blow them outa CyberSpace right into a black hole... Let's do it with blasting music... (I've got my trumpet AND piccolo as well, right here in my bag.)

Lol, Ruby! This poem is so you! I love you, Twin!

Oh, I have not yet took the time to go over there to upset myself. I really believe HubPages Management should fight this war on management level, and, of course, with us in the back line. Search engines, too, as well as advertisers, SHOULD eliminate sites like BZ. How can we not be able to duplicate our Hubs but BZ succeeds? Wth can I not understand?

Are you ready? Let's go... Left-right-left-right ~~~~

Hi, Ruby, It's funny you mentioned your Haiku and Senryu poetry not being appropriated by bigezine, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest their tents! One of my hubs that they appropriated is "Haiku and Senryu Jokes." That's fitting - they are a big joke! The biggest joke is that they included my name with my copyright and at the same time listed some fictitious fool as the writer. ?????
