“Don’t bow down to critics who have not themselves written great masterpieces.”
― Lawrence Ferlinghetti, City Lights Pocket Poets Anthology

I’ve been assailed by several critics this last week. Never mind why and for what.

Not that I’ve written anything resembling “great masterpieces,” but I find it amusing how quickly people come running when a troll on social media sticks in the first spear or sinks the first fang. drawing just a drop of blood.

On my, then the sharks circle!
