Well, apart from length, I don't think this poem has a lot going for it. The more I read, the more I wondered what on earth it was all about. Still, I recall having this experience with poetry before. What was your line, Boynton?

Haven't as yet contributed. Just reading.
Some lines work.
Actually Philip, I think at its best such a poem/project should mean "what on earth" - the www - eveything and nothing ;)

Yeah, well, it is probably achieving that. Its all a bit like most chat rooms I seem to stray into. They may have a published purpose, but they end up being forums for some idiots to make the sensible people wonder why they bothered.

Yeah - sometimes it seems that the idiots are winning. Everywhere.
Hopefully, in that forum, it might be seen that a rhyme can carry more punch than a curse.
Or a dead piece of verse.

Nice note of optomism - not to mention poetic. Let's watch on and see what happens, eh?
