Don't Give Up, Hubbers! - a Poem of Support for Hubbers

My drawing is about as high quality as their website. The only high quality on their website are our well-written hubs!

Dear Hubbers,

I just want to say

our stolen hubs

sure ruined our day!


Darn you cowards

at Bigezine!

Taking our work's

just plain ole mean!


But don't lose heart,

we'll get those guys

with our emails

and indignant cries.


File a complaint!

See the Learning Center;

You'll see a form

and what to enter.


Just giving up

gives them the win.

We'll take them out

and rise again!


Hold your heads high

and stand strong, peeps!

We'll band together

to fight those creeps!


Though their thieving

all of us enrages

We'll take ownership

of our hub pages!


National Poetry Month #5


April is National Poetry Month

I thought I'd take a break from sharing more serious poetry with focusing on what's on hubbers' minds in regard to www.bigezine.com stealing our hubs and putting them under different writers' names. Hang in there, hubbers. File your complaints, and be patient. Situations like this are a part of writing, particularly online. It does make me sick, but we have a good thing going, and we'll be okay! Now, back to the poetry....

Behind the scenes

There is one so mean

To paste up shadow faces

so he/she can be unseen.

And claim what isn't theirs

to copy paste is in bad taste

to leave so many brilliant Hubbers

mouths wide open who toiled in vain to

have you try and claim their

work as yours is mentally insane.

So give it up you Bots

for not you shall claim to be

yours is stupidity and in bad taste.

Your demise is surely no surprise

as we take measures to destroy your

credentials you have none, so succumb

to your demise as we bury you and

that's no surprise.

You have had your fun at our

expense but let it be your undoing

as we expend you and send you to

a place where you will beg and repent

and be sent directly to a place

where you belong and it's not Heaven sent.

Thanks, Ardie! I didn't know about the drawing. I had drawn something better with a marker and taken a picture, but my picture cord stopped working, so I couldn't upload it, so I used Paint. Glad you like it!

Hey Vincent, hope you posted that wonderful poem you wrote in this comment section! It really filled a great need too! To catch wind of this culprit is serendipity to me.

So I will probably write something about it. You guys are awesome!

The beach was SPLENDID! I have so many writing ideas, I'm busting at my brain-wrinkles. Did lots of soul searching, reflecting, biking, relaxing, and feeding the turtles. I could have stayed for two more weeks! :D

Wouldn't it be fitting if they tried to steal this hub? They are so original they probably wouldn't even know this was about them! Great poem!

Glad to see you back, CC. You can join us soon in fighting those people who are stealing our work! Glad you had a relaxing time away, though!

Maybe their thievery is a blessing in disguise, because this poem and the others they have inspired are simply awesome! They've inadvertently increased our revenue because we're all reading each other's works. They've really brought this community together, and I don't think they planned on that! Great poem Victoria, I love your poetry!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Exactly, sgbrown! NEVER GIVE UP!

Lord de cross--I'm still mad, too, dear friend, but we have to hang in there. I love writing here so much with you guys. We'll stand together and get through this! :-)

AWESOME POEM. THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

XCON--They have copied a lot of our hubs and posted them on that site under different writers' names. To see if any of yours are there, go to the site, click on any of the topics (it doesn't matter which), and type in some of your hub titles. See what shows up. It seems that perhaps they have the more recent ones. I've found 8 or 9 of mine. We've been filing DMCA complaints and sending emails. Good luck!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

teaches--I'm glad the poem was encouraging. I hope, too, that this comes to an end, soon.
