I usually hate whining, regardless if it’s coming from someone else’s mouth or my own. For this week’s “Poem of the Week,” though, I’ve decided to submit a work based on an annoyance I’ve been having with this blog for the past two to three months that I’ve no doubt has been just as much a problem for so many other WordPress bloggers. It’s more or less an extension to the message of my poem from July 12, which you’re all free to read in the instance that any of you would like more background information on the subject at hand.
Also, for the record, I would like to give a nice big shoutout to each and every one of my subscribers who has stuck around to read my stuff since day one as well as invite you all to keep doing so. Your input, no matter which form it takes—be it subscribing to my blog via WordPress or email, leaving me feedback concerning my work, sharing my blog posts with others, and even buying my books from one of my author pages (See the links below.)—means a lot. Likewise, for those of you out there who also enjoy my material and would like to support what I do any which way you can, feel free to do so, and I will continue to supply you with more material to suit your fancy. Otherwise, the poem below is yours for the reading, and I hope you all can forgive whatever negative tone I give off in it.

I Don’t Sub for Sub
August 31, 2016
I don’t sub for sub. Such an act is crap.
Either like my stuff or don’t. Don’t just sub
In hopes that I’ll come, fall into your lap,
And worship your own lack of substance, bub.
My computer ain’t my life, after all.
I don’t live on it 24/7.
Great content exists, but I can’t see all
There is beneath the sun up in Heaven.
It’s nothing personal, either…just truth.
Grow a thick skin, then, please, and just move on.
This ain’t Twitter or Tumblr, super sleuth.
This is WordPress. Let’s try to get along.
Like my stuff? Then sub! Don’t like it? Then don’t.
Please take this to heart…though I fear you won’t.
