Well that's What came across my desk this week!

I'm still seeing articles about the Page VS. Stage types of poetry
so here's a little poem about that:\

The great debate
By "Laughing" Larry Berger

The story still rages on
divide and conquer rules the day!

Poets have a hard enough time
getting respect as it is ! Let alone if we divide ourselves!

"Reverend" Otis of the Watts Prophets gave me the answer
" Page poets write on paper .
 Performance poets write on the hearts of their listeners!" 
 What more needs to be said on the subject ?
Can we please move on now?

Neat huh?
