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

Updated on May 7, 2013
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....

      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!

      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!

      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.
