The last stanza broke the rhythm, so you might want to rework that one a bit. But this was a wonderful way to handle the theme word and well done.
Oops - and most important of all - the message was excellent.
Congratulations on your win! This is a delightful poem; I have no idea how I missed it before now. Excellent way to use the topic, and it takes great skill to take your readers from a smile to a lump in the throat in the space of one poem. Good job!
I am so shocked! I was actually embarrassed by my I thought it was rather mundane and the last stanza was rhymed altogether differently than the rest. Shock, Shock, SHock. I still can't believe it. You've made my day! I thank you all for your encouragement and kudos. /ms
Very nice. Congratulations!
And the kudos go to you...
God bless.
Great poem and versatile use of "break." Congratulations! ~Gwynn
Congratulations, Marilyn, on this witty and poignant poem! It's delightful! (Some of those names look awfully familiar! LOL)
Congratulations on your win! It's well-deserved. Your poem captures the reader's attention in a fun style and then hits them with the point! Well-done...I was thinking the same thing about the names as Linda, though...:)
Just a few ordinary "names" I picked up along the way...(smile) /ms
What a unique treat! Nicely done -- and congratulations!

God Bless,
(Is it okay to comment after the fact? The poem was new to me.)
Very powerful. It seems that you have lilved a life that allows you to make studied comments on each of the students responses. I'd like to "rack 'em up" with you and talk.
