It's been a busy day for me
and I will tell you why...
There are some thieves among us
and, today, I don't feel shy.
I got a shock the other day,
a shock that was upsetting...
a friend informed me, straight away,
of a crime I'm not forgetting.
It had been a month or three
since my Muse had gone away,
and suddenly, two days ago,
right in she did sashay.
And so, I wrote three little poems,
three Hubs I did produce...
But, then, my friend sent me a note
that made me quite obtuse!
Hubpages is a writer's site
where writers go to share...
a “Pirate” site has pilfered them
and published stolen fare!
Low and behold, I found my work
upon a varlet site,
credited to authors that
claim what they did not write!
And I am not the only one
whose writing there appeared...
there were lots of Hubbers' work
that have been commandeered!
Stolen words and stolen thoughts
of talented cuisine,
are posted there for all to see
all claimed by BigEzine!
An article directory, who
it seems can't write a word,
has stolen all our precious hubs,
with bogus claims absurd!
So after thought and sleuthing,
Some footwork became clear,
I drafted up a letter of
And sent it out to every place
I thought made any sense,
And maybe it won’t matter but
Now the world sees this offense.
And I feel less the victim when
I speak up for our rights…
But if I ever meet these rogues
I may punch out their lights!
