Just to emphasise the point Crispin is making in his editorial, we reserve the right to select only poems we consider to be good enough (catch us on a bad day and NOTHING is good enough! Only joking. We try at all times to be fair and impartial). This is true at all times, but especially so at busy times, like now with the World Cup generating so much interest. Also, to be fair to everyone, we might hold back some poems for a few days, as the home page screen and New Poems screen can only hold a limited number of poems.
Crispin states :
For the children out there writing in, please check your grammar. We do this for fun remember!
PLEASE NOTE.. WE ARE CURRENTLY BEING SWAMPED WITH SHORT POEMS – OFTEN WITH POOR QUALITY AND SPELLING.. WE ONLY PUBLISH THOSE WHICH WE SELECT AND CONSIDER GOOD POEMS ! SO PLEASE PLEASE DON’T SEND IN ANY MORE..
” England England are the best
They are better than all the rest” (type poems)
i) because we’re not sure they are better (yet)…
ii) because we’ve deleted tons of them already …
iii) because you can do better than that…
iv) and because we want you try to produce well-thought out poems..
Blimey! After reading iv), I might have to stop my own poems!
