Do you ever wish you could write a letter, just to vent or rant... maybe you have something nice to say... do IT here... the rulzs are simple:
First line should read: To Whom It May Concern
Last line: same as first line
Every other line should rhyme


To Whom It May Concern:
This is the season
for glad tidings and cheer
I wish you all peace
in the coming new year

My wishes for you
are love and good health
and if you need it
a measure of wealth

May your hearth have a fire
may your friends be the best
if you have these things
then you have been blessed
To Whom It May Concern....

let me try

to whom it may concern
...
you frosted my last cupcake
and I could take no more
Thus you became the first one
I added to Ignore
...

To whom it may concern:
A simple act of kindness
was reported in the News
how the rookie policeman gave
the homeless guy some shoes

They posted it on Facebook
how the child gave up her gifts
to help some foster children
have their Christmas wish

What have we become
what did we lose
when a simple act of kindness
is reported in the News
To whom it may concern....

To whom it may concern
an invitation to discern
and as such
it doesn't say much
so there must be further to learn.

I read it all the way through
but I had nothing to do
with any part
right from the start
so the proposition is patently untrue!

To whom it may concern,
After being on hold, with music so bold
static crunched in my ear, 10 minutes of cheer
a sudden surprise, a pleasant young voice,
someone was there, someone who cared
turned my dismay, with patience and grace
to a grateful consumer, whose problem’s erased.
To whom it may concern.

being the master thief
take time to the prime.

To Whom It May Concern:

I should like to be considered
For the position listed in the The Times.
Should you peruse my resume
I think that you shall find
That I truly am a candidate
Of the most consummate kind
Who simply requires the slightest direction
To produce work that expands the mind.

I understand, in fact,
That you are looking for
A discreet secretary
Who happens to be size four.
I would like you to know
That I can type and do more
Than hold down a chair
And charm who walk in the door.

You see, I went to Ivy League Schools,
And I have a Master’s degree.
However, as a women, I understand
Education is a look that does not befit me.
So, instead, I’ll type your correspondence,
Answer your phone, and charge your fees,
While I wear my skirts at proper lengths
And wait for you to see,

That the woman you mother would love to meet
The proper woman to bear your name
And, two point five kids, one a Junior,
Just the same!


I’m sorry sir, but you can tell
From my cover letter that
My imagination works quite well.
I hope that you will hire me,
Your insurance I can sell.
To Whom It May Concern.

Sir.
I hope.

To Whom It May Concern

It hasn't been long
Since Omar died
We're still not sure
It was real suicide

The red truck riding
Down the muddy street
Happened on his body
With a gun at his feet

The hole in his head
Like the dot of an 'I'
Drew vultures and crows
From a heartless sky

There was no one to claim
His foreigner's soul
There was no one to cry
When they covered the hole

I hear there is family
On some distant shore
We treat them as rumors
And nothing more

Are we not better than that
Can we not afford a stone
For a man who died
In our city - alone

To Whom It May Concern

To whom it may concern
when you are in a public place
yakking on your phone
please be aware
you are not alone

your filthy conversation
is extremely offensive to me
go somewhere private
would you pretty please

Why don't you lower your voice
show just a little class
because I am THIS close
to shoving your cell phone up your ass
To whom it may concern...

I am too often guilty of that. My family's long distance phone calls could be transmitted by two tin cans and a string. We grew up in loud multi-ethnic neighborhood with everyone's windows open (no ac) so even inside we had to shout over our next door neighbors. Not kidding. Kids screamed their friend's name outside their door to have them come out to play:
"Fire! Fire! Fire!" Glad you didn't live by me...there would be fire trucks blaring too!

Show us you're sense of class
consider those sharp ears,
shouting like the band's brass
eliminates all fears.

To Whom It May Concern

When you utter decrees
and enforce your power
to control your minions
from your ivory tower
do you not wonder
when they fail to obey
if they'll tear you asunder
and rip your toupeť
from Presidential head
that desires a crown
and bows to the masses
while wearing a frown.
To whom it may concern.

Then you give your rich friends
breaks with their tax
while public services
you slice with your axe.
From out of your mouth
you vomit diarrhea
then put all the blame
on that bloke from Korea.
To whom it may concern.

To whom it mayconcern:


Why does offering a critique
differ from an opinion?
Does one belong to the meek
the other makes you feel that you have no antinion?


Itís not that I canít,
but will I bebelieved?
My artistry in writing will never be mistaken for a Rembrandt.
All I need do is look at the awards youíve achieved.


How is it done,
this literary conundrum.
Iíll relax and have fun
and hope it easier than putting on a condom.


A smile in my heart
to pair with the terror on my face.
There are times some of my writings are a bit part.
And others are pieces that drew the fourth ace.


An honest text
of an equalís hardwork
Iíve no reason to be perplexed,
while perusing their handiwork.


Least this letter you burn,
Iíve addressed it,
To whom it mayconcern.

To whom it may concern,
I"ll follow your commands.
No need to justify instructions
or share with me your plan.
Realizing I shouldn't be in charge
was a hard pill, but one I've swallowed.
You're the chief. I'm an Indian.
You lead and I will follow.
I will submit to instruction
with no questions or fuss.
Tell me what it is you need
and I'll do what I must.
If shit hits the fan though,
while you're the one in power...
then don't be too surprised
if my reverences for you sours.
Don't think you can complain to me
about failures when it's your turn.
If you must, then please submit all complaints
to whom it may concern.

I am not Oprah
and I am not Dr. Phil
I am not a 2 bit shrink
with a magic pill

I can't solve your problems
my own life is a %$$ mess
hell, I should be on Jerry Springer
as his special guest ...

Now please go on home
you didn't ruin my day
because I never listen
to anything you say

To Whom It May Concern

Lines are drawn, lines are bent
lines define a message sent

Compromise...new lines appear
lines come back but are not clear

Lines remembered, lines forgot
lines crossed and some are not

Blurring lines are forbidden
lines betrayed are unforgiven

The line I walk is undefined
several lines that are combined

Lines I draw then erase
lessons learned from past mistakes

New lines drawn, no longer hidden
defines things that are forbidden

Compromises... I decline
I refuse to cross that line

I lost some lines along the way
where they went I cannot say

Lines in sand soon disappear
message was not loud and clear

Cross my line, I won't think twice
I shove back and won't play nice

I refuse to be defined
by the way I cross my lines

I don't know where my line will end
but my choices I'll defend

On my tombstone, write this line
she refused to be defined

To whom it may concern...

It's awesome except for some tense-skewing ("New lines drawn, no longer hidden/
define things that are forbidden").

Sixth line: "lines *are* crossed and some are not"

I REALLY like this poem.

Like this! Quite clever.

And, it's a totally different style for you. If your name wasn't on it, I would not have known yours. We all develop a poetry voice (Walt Whitman was the King of this....I am not applauding his repetitious tediousness...FYI, everyone: let's not debate, smiles). I'm always impressed when a writer tries new vocals! Applause not only in the attempt, but the great execution. Thumbs up. Sas

To Whom It May Concern,
Watch your forest burn
Your beaches swell with plastic junk
Numb your brain with video punks
Latest cars clothes ego jumps
to make you all feel good

Find a way to save your home
Save the land and air’s ozone
It’s dying all around you
Planet Earth’s your gift at birth
Treat her well or time will tell
when we’ll be gone
and she will live without us
