Just once,
that's all I ask.

can we keep the dumb news off our poetry site?

I just can't see how Covid and BLM are considered poetry. Maybe it's just me
but I'm sick of seeing it, at least a couple times, in EVERY contest. There's
other things to write about, folks. If you want to repeatedly keep talking about
what's going on in the news, I'm sure there's on-line blogs to go state your
concerns with others who want to let the news overtake their lives completely.
I've heard enough of it on here. That's for sure.
