Pet Hatreds (Free verse) by Bobjim
He took his pet hatreds out for a walk, On a very strong piece of chain, For they seemed to dislike the populace, And would bite people time and again. He left them outside the hardware shop, While he purchased a packet of nails, And when he came out, his pet hatreds had gone. He was happy and moved to Wales.

Up the ladder: Little Bird
Down the ladder: stab in the dark

He'll be back for the nails!

I like this, clever but why did his pet hatreds leave when he bought the nails.

who knows? who cares? no-one in all likelihood. don't ask stupid questions or i will write nasty poems about you. i won't even put in enough effort to give it rhyme or rhythm.

I don't think you gave it very much effort in the first place

This poem was written by Robert Rankin. You've just copied it you fraud

You have stolen this poem from Robert Rankin and attempted to pass it off as your own work.

YOU ARE A FRAUD, A PLAGIARIST, AND A THIEF!

I think this poem is excellent.

Long live Rankin.

If anyone out there would like to see more of Roberts work (the real author of this poem and others that bobjim has stolen)then please look him up. You can probably already see he has a large and devoted fanbase. He would appeal to anyone found of Jasper Fforde or Terry Pratchett (although he wouldn't thank me for saying that!)and is a very compelling author of far fetched fiction; his body of work is prolific and he usually has a large amount of shelf space in all major bookshops.

I don't understand the reason behind passing someone elses work off as your own. Well, appart from the obvious fact that the only talent you obviously have is with the copy and paste keys.

Well done for that, very well copied and pasted.
