Old in More Ways — Aargh!

Published May 10, 2018 by Nan Mykel

There goes my mind! Catch it!

Aargh!  I just tried to post a poem to d’Verse tonight (Thursday, May 10) and I may have been successful because I got at least one response, but I don’t see anything myself when I click on my name.  I had trouble posting about 2 years ago but can’t now–at least not so I can see.  Maybe the problem is that the name of my poem is the same as the prompt?  So I changed the name to “My Bridge.”  Interestingly the one response I got on my site then changed to a heading that said he was responding to “My Bridge.”

Also, there’s the question that if I click on my permalink address I’m asked if I want to:

Open link in new tab

Open link in new window

Open link in incognito window

Save link as

Copy link address

When I tried to post with “My Bridge” I am told that “Blenza says that  Link url must begin with ‘http://’….  (NO! That’s NOT what it said:  It said  &  #  39  ;  http  :  //  &  #  39  ;  )

I’ll bet you think I’m making this up, don’t you?  You didn’t miss much.

Thanks for the comment anyway, Frank!

Neglected Poem from Poet/try page earlier on 5-29-2016 d’Verse

THE WORLD IS FLAT AFTER ALL

Dubbed Democracy, it used to be

top of the line, the lead ship, at sea,

and on the land it served us well,

until the  strains of its death knell

fell,

bearing an underbelly swole

with all the pilfered things they stole

in broad daylight, and  on t.v.!

Gone is the half-belief in he

who’ll take us safely to the shore

while staying steadfast to the core.

The compass nestles in the deep

while those on board remain asleep.

They used to say the earth was round,

that right makes might, but I found

that all I knew I now know not,

nor how to tell the truth from rot,

and not so sure that we’ll endure,

to make a safe arrival.

Nan
