EDIT: This poem isn't about THIS forum. I know I wrote it below but there seems to be some confusion!!!!!

Written a long time ago for another forum ...

Acid Rain

Mellifluous, a smooth and even tone
Overt oppression jars this slickened tongue
Derelict the thoughts of addled men,
Sat pompous on a thrown of young.

Angst, the cold of a blacksmith’s steel,
Ready the anvil, hammer and fire.
Eschew the water, shape, not starve the blade,
Forgo the calamity of lustful ire.

Open hearts, the once was withered part
Or risk a turgid land of clod and weed
Lament the arid earth, breathe in the trees
Superfluous the acid rain so praise our seed.

Hmmm... I took some time to really think about this...

my interpretation:

Not speaking to or not disciplining the youth in a thoughtful or balanced way can produce environmental hazards. They don't need to be raged at; they need healthy rain.

My favorite line is "Eschew the water, shape, not starve the blade"

Not sure if I understood properly but I appreciate how it flows...real easy, no hiccups.

It's about bad modding on a forum. :) look down the first letters of the stanzas ...
