someones gone and stole my art
theyve plagiarized my very heart,
with crooked gall they gathered in
my honest thoughts in shallow sin,
i pray they see whats just and right
i have no want to pick a fight,
till then i hold at strong front line
in firm defense of what is mine.
–and here goes something folks.
-link to my piece
-and here is the shameless plagiarized version.
people have re-blogged my poems before. appropriately and with given credit.
i have no problem with that, it is actually incredibly flattering, especially in this wonderful community of poets i have come to love. this though, is really rather appalling.
im more the apology and hug type of gal. heres hoping this ends in that.
Wonderful poem above.I feel for you as a fellow poet.You can never be an artist if you do not possess morals and dignity.Can’t you report that???You should.
i have reported it to wordpress support. i am waiting for a response. if they do not reply and the writer does not fix what he needs to i will report him to an online plagiarism society. thank you so much for your response. i appreciate your reading and value your feedback.
I understand…walk by mine too sometime…
Sorry about this Viva. I can relate, coz I was once a victim too. Your culprit deleted the post already.
Sorry for the late response. Heat waves and raging lava flows are up here in Hawaii. My COPD is killing me.
Nonetheless, I wish WordPress has a procedure in places to address this growing concern.
