MEASURE FOR MEASURE, I’M A CRITICAL TREASURE

Spare the world the banal critic —
I do reviews analytic.

No other critic, dead or living,
Could be more fair or less forgiving.

When I sow scorn, I am so charming
Even I find me disarming.

But chew on this: there is no question
I give writers indigestion.

As for “rep,” mine stands the tallest;
As a scholar, I’m the scholast.

And, though my opinions be divisive,
No one can say I’m not decisive.

As Shakespeare would say, and I agree,
What fools we may — or may not — be.

    I greatly appreciate it, Paul. Unfortunately, I’m the epitomy of technological insufficiency – in other words, an old codger with extremely limited computer skills, at a loss to reciprocate in kind. However, I shall attempt to add your blog to my Blogroll so that recommendations can be made and entrance gained with a quick click (I may have to call on a loved one or two for assistance). Wish me luck.
