A Lifebelt!

Out in the cold, unrelenting sea,
"Jumping Ship" no longer appeals to me.
I grabbed the lifebelt you all had thrown
I felt appreciated and now I'm home.

"The Owner".

The policies of "The Owner", whoever he might be
Need not influence my judgement, that's obvious to me.
I chose my place on Wikinut and was accepted from the start
With love, care and encouragement with which I will not part.

I respect the comments of the moderators, each and every one.
Their acceptance is always revealing and appreciated by me..
The comments from the Wikinutters are so important to read
They give me the feed-back I realize I will always need..

Authors on these pages give me inspiration and knowledge
I have learned so much on history, politics, science and medicine
I need to step up on conveying anything I learned in college
Research and respond with facts and even inciteful revelation...

Ivyevelyn has been towed-in!

Don't throw me back into that cold, unrelenting sea
Pogo can't swim but I know he would come along with me
The waves are choppy, it's rough and dangeous out here
Haul me in, give me a blanket and a nice, hot cup of tea.

Sometimes we make decisions and cannot turn back again,
Jumping of a bridge or throwing ourselves under a train.
But after all, I only jumped off the Wikinut ship
And you will toe me in, Pogo too, it's been one hell of a trip.

You might all wonder if perhaps I've become unbalanced
Maybe I have but at least I'm communicating clearly
I need to stay with Wikinutters I know that for sure
So Mark, Johnny, Steve and Peter, open up the door!

Footnote: Bronnamdi - Your insight is remarkable!

Thanks for your message, Johnny. I got "fired up", wrote over night, and then realized I had nowhere to go the next morning. I am thinking about writing about topics and not using poetry. (I did when I first arrived and I would like to try again). Hope they prove worthwhile.

Whew! Life my favorite bumper sticker says: "If you can't change your mind, are you sure you still have one?" :-}

I have become more aware of the "other side of the story". I liked your comment. If I decide on something, I usually hang in with it.

Good for you, Ivy love. You must remain here, as I told you.
Just a revelation for me about women.
They don't have a dirty mind because they change it often.:-) Be happy, love. tsau!

Thank you, Buzz. Maybe I had some difficulty with the word, "Expert". I am a "Jack of All Trades".

Honestly, Steve, it was not a "publicity stunt". Glad you are not too fed up with me and your support is greatly appreciated.

I wasn't one of those that threw you a blanket and a hot cup of tea, but I'm glad others did! Wikinut is a wonderful place to be. I haven't been reading many pages lately, lack of time, but I still love this community.
