Steal This Poem

My lunch money is in tact

and my wallet's tightly closed,

but a big ol' bully

has stolen all my poems!

I've signed them with my name

and scribbled from the heart.

and you crooks copied every part!

Where are your ethics?

Or have your scruples gone astray?

Betrayed by love of money,

you're a thief in every way.

You dance on stolen dimes,

taken from our earnings,

and now we hubbers

feel our innards churning!

We had no strength in one,

but you've taken from us all.

And know we have the power

to crush you till you fall!

So we're standing back to back,

creators, working to destroy.

A Hub Army, ready to deploy!

Feel us closing in,

and know that you've been warned.

We'll bring you 'ziners down,

and we're coming like a swarm!

A thief steals something from you and a robber robs something of you. Result- no trace of either thief or robber or things stolen or robbed. Contrast to this, just think of these modern plunderers ! these classic thieves and robbers are ever present with themselves and stolen and robbed things( articles, poems, songs etc. ) with all brazenness and audacity. Ways of these crazy persons are just bewildering ! LVidoni5, love your so sweet poem with so strong a clarion call !

Moms- I searched my titles on big ezine, after reading about all the plagiarism problems with that site. Sure enough I found one after a couple minutes of searching.

Thanks a lot Poetic. I sure hope we do.

Thanks Poohgranma! Yeah, I'm really hoping hubpages will band together with all the hubbers here, and use some of their weight to get rid of those guys.

Wow. A lot of great response.

Thanks Victoria, Your poem was great inspiration!

Hey rebecca, Thanks so much, yeah I don't blame you. It's so frustrating!

SirDent- That's a really good idea, I'll see if I can find a good spot to work it in.

Thanks so much Daughter of Maat!

Thanks justateacher, yeah that was a great idea.

Thank you Random Life, I appreciate that.

Hello anamika, Yeah isn't it great how so many are banding together to bring these guys down? Great community is right!

Hello LadyTenaz. Yeah so many are bummed out about this whole thing. Glad I could help represent!

Exactly samtebbutt, It's so disheartening seeing your personal poems with someone elses name signed below them.

There is nothing that can not be breached by a thief I see.

Awesome writing!

I like the line "poems are scribbled from the heart" This is why it wounds so much when frauds steal our poems and art!Grrrr!

Nice! I liked it....Its a shame so many people are getting their content stolen. Thankfully most of my poetry is already published in my books so if anyone tries to do it to me, they will be slapped with a fat law suit. Hope it all works out and hopefully my poems won't end up getting stolen either.

LOve this! Most of us seems to be inspired by the content theft and writing poems/articles about the content thieves. I absolutely love the HubPages community for the unity we have here. Hub voted up!

Another great hub about those thieves! And I agree with Sir Dent - put your name and link in the middle and get more traffic for yourself!

In the middle of the poem you should put your name and link back to here just so they will have your name in the content they steal.
