Application of Kittens

Apply Kittens

For sorrow unanswerable

Apply kitten firmly to breast,

hear the soothing purr,

and know that your very self

is enough....

no money, or looks,

or wit or style needed....

Kitten also works for

cases of knotted anger,

seeds of bitterness,

hopeless fear.

feel better naturally,

without pills or drink,

simply apply kitten as needed.

Some maintenance required.

no refunds allowed.

O.K. hubpages says there is too little content in my poem for it to be published. Why even allow poems on your site if it can't be brief? I also can't write poems in Latin.

So, I tried linked in.2 out of nine poems reached the public. Am I missing something? I'd love to be part of a non-profit poetry site, where I could write poems to my specifications , (if that's the right word), and not the other way around.

I am fighting to stay positive! It would be nice for just once, if something worked in my life.

Purrfect Poetry anthology: submissions wanted!

Harry Yang

Editor at Lost Tower Publications

Lost Tower Publications are collecting poetry for our summer charity anthology entitled, Purrfect Poetry.

The aim of this anthology is to produce a poetic celebration of cats. This anthology is an upbeat, amusing, positive exploration of our relationship with the cats in our lives.

For details click on the link below:


So click on the link just above the line and submit your Kitten poem to a legitimate publisher that actually cares about poetry. LOST TOWERS accepted a poem of mine for their recently published anthology, "Bridge of Fates" (it's actually the lead poem, which pleased me), available on Amazon.

I am so pissed at Hubpages and their arrogant, uncaring attitute. I haven't posted anything there for months, and I'm not going to. I think I'll just pull everything. But I don't understand at all why you're habving problems at Linkedin! Please send a note to DE an dexplain your problems. Your work as you know, has made an impact ther. He'll make it work for you.

The little poem is captivating. And lost Towers will think so, too.

Luv 'n cusses
