Wow, that was so clever!
I've always thought of the sestina as being one of the hardest forms of poetry, and you did amazingly on this one! The repetition of the words made excellent sense, and it brought together some points that I thought interesting. For example, the fact that, after being punished for lies he didn't tell, Harry began to tell lies to cover up his punishment. I had never made that connection before! It was really interesting to me.
Thanks for posting this poem!
Kinda depressing, but with a good point.
Author's Response: Thanks, I tend to write to poetry on the darker side. Plus since the structure of the poem made me repeat those same six words over and over it kind had to be. But I'm glad you enjoyed it and got the point. Irony is fun, isn't it? Thanks again for the review!
Author's Response: Ya, this poem is just a little dark. Thanks for the review.
geeze! rip out my heart an d stomp on it why don't you? I had to catch my breath in there because it made me choke. Amazing job. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Wow, I'm not exactly sure what to say. I'm glad you found meaning in my poem. Thanks for the review!
wow, good job! I really enjoyed it, keep on writing. you'd be a great poet!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks. I glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review!
Wow, that was cool. I love how it still seems like Harry but it is just so much more rational compared to what he would usually get from this. Stupid toad.
Author's Response: Thanks, it took a while to get all the words right. You're right thaat is does seem a bit rational considering how emotional Harry was during this time. Though I think after he was stuck in that office for as long as he was he would eventually think of the irony in the words he was writing. Thanks a bunch for your review!
