The Nacreous Oughts

15 March 2004

I am shocked, I am flabbergasted. I have just been told (by "Cuneiform D. Ream", obviously not his/her real name) that a poem I recently published on my web site, "Mind My Have Still I", contains a plagiarized first line taken from another poem, "His Revisable Inlet Will Annihilate", by the poet known as Alfred The Mail Agent. SHAME ON YOU, DELUXXE 247!!!

Plagiarism is, in literature, perhaps the only crime.
Every poet's imagination is HIS OWN.
If you are too impoverished of thought to come up with your own stuff, BETTER NOT WRITE AT ALL.
That's what Ken has to say on this regrettable subject.
