Great rhyme and rhythm, i liked how it was themed with egg-ness
| lux in tenebris 12/28/06 . chapter 2
Sweet! I liked that a lot. I love poems with hidden words and meanings... I'm one of those people that read mysteries and spend the hours I'm NOT reading trying to figure out "whodunit."

Wow. Deep. Awesome. Buzzy. Food.
I love how everything has ore than one meaning. And the way the lines are pronounced, that was good. I picked up on offense and greed while first reading it, but just thought they sounded familiar, I never thought that was the intended point and that each line had it. Keep going.

Wow, what a unique and orginal poem you've created here! It was like a mini-treasure hunt for the mind: find the hidden words, connect them, and discover their meaning. I have to admit though, that I had to read it several times( and do so out loud) before I found them... I managed to get all but one. I also found the 'egg' theme used through out, ingenious (if not a bit humorous,for I too thought of a bunch of humpty dumpties sitting at a table)but also brilliant. What better way to describe a feast being attented by a bunch/dozen(get it?) of rotten men than with an egg?
I think this is absolutely by far, one of your best 'non-satire', thought-provoking type pieces yet and it carries such an important message too if one cares to dig a little deeper and look past the surface. I believe Mr. Ledbetter would be proud to know that he has inspired someone to find new life and meaning in poetry. Well done Satire, well done! Scottie

Oh, the hidden words are really neat. It's amazing what one can weave into poetry. I rather liked the poem itself, as well. It's an accurate, though unfortunate, picture of society.

Oo! Oo! I love it! I really do! One tiny question: I think I understand why you hid the words offense, negligence, miserliness, distress, greed, rensetment and malcontent, but why the word "mislead"? That was all. Above all, props.

Oops, I was wrong. At least I got the egg part right. Oh well :P
| Justin J 12/7/06 . chapter 1
...Egg! Am I right? Well, I'll soon know because I'm about to read chapter 2!
| EmptynessFilled 12/7/06 . chapter 2
And I was right! Gluttony! I kinda just took "eggly" to mean humpty dumpty like...you know, fat.
| EmptynessFilled 12/7/06 . chapter 1
Great old style poem! Fits perfectly with other works in our Lit book. Of course, I don't understand one bit of it, though I'm pretty sure it has to do with gluttony. Let's see if I'm right!
| Bob Evans 12/7/06 . chapter 2
Whoa, I had no idea you had such deep meanings behind your works. I am even further impressed!
| Bob Evans 12/7/06 . chapter 1
M! Mind if I join in the feast? Well I have to say you've got a poet in you! Good work!
