Poll question: Is RetroLounge trying to steal my thunder?
RetroLounge has returned to post poetry threads in the Lounge. Many of you noticed and commented in his thread, so I assume you're already aware of this.

I think he's just trying to steal my thunder...IS HE????

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. I've only seen one poetry thread posted
That doesn't necessarily mean that it will be a daily thread...

3. Someone had been posting "Shakespeare's Thought of the Day" and I copycatted
seemingly resulting in the discontinuation of the former, which was not my intent. Weaseling in on the attention was, but not to the detriment of something valid and valuable. I wish that they would continue it.

It's a can of worms, but I say that there's enough room for two poetry threads, if both of you have enough room within yourselves to allow for it.

More is better. It's about giving something to the group and thus embiggening it, not about the attention.

That's for me to steal. ;)

:toast:

7. Aristus has been posting that for several years now, I think.
He might have taken a break from DU during the past few months. Apologies to Aristus if I've got that wrong.

I'm glad that Aristus has received a promotion and hope that he brings the daily thread back soon.

8. the fact that there is confusion
speaks volumes for the background PM circuit

It's an enigma wrapped in a mystery covered by a chocolately conundrum.

10. My dear BlueIris...
I don't think he's really trying to steal your thunder...

He loves poetry...

And he loves to show the poets who are meaningful to him, to us...

He's entitled to do this...

There's room in the Lounge for both of you!

I understand your feelings, though...

:hug:

29. Y'know, up until now I never thought I'd work the phrase 'hotwire your goat' into casual
conversation.

Thank you for proving me wrong. :P

18. No matter if he is, nor any matter if he is not. You will continue to be you,
and he will not.

Even if both of you continue to post poetry, you'll be there and he will be there as well, although his there and your there will be different.

And so it will be.
