Dear Dean, Beautifully done, as always, the clear rhyme that forms the sense with the music and the sentiment all the illustrated highlights. May it be another glorious year for all on Fanstory

You get a six from me for the meter and for the message. Your mythical place sounds quite familiar. There have been changes here @ FS - and like you say - some good, some not so much. I don't know who the dark Bard in your poem is and perhaps it's best not to know. Tom used to run the bad guys off. Is that not happening anymore? I've watched your skill with meter grow so much over these few years, Dean. I know that comes from your experiences here and feedback from the good-guys. But, nao one should take crap from anyone - report the creeps. You are now one of the best poets here - so perhaps it's hard to get meaningful reviews anymore. I hope that is not the case and that you continue to write and inspire others. There seems to be a winter of discontent here. It has happened before and we got past it. Were you around when 'Emotional Soldier' was here? Rose

Dear Dean, it takes a prophet/visionary/activist/PURE GENIUS to tackle a subject that is so near and dear to your heart, and convey your message in a humerous/serious/ and vastly entertaining way. I can be a bit dense at times with the way things are really, and I believe that I, for one, have been enlightened by your sophisticated prose. I believe that it is the job of us writers to not only entertain, but to convey, through our craft and passion, contemporary subjects that need to be addressed in a manner that not only catches our eye, but gets us caught up in a current that flows not only through the veins of us artists, but ultimately, through us all. Truly outstanding, I really hope that EVERYONE here reads this entertaining, relevant, and poignant message. Badger

Nicely written, Dean. You and I came on board about the same time. I think it was November 2012 for me. I still love FanStory. No big probs here. If any, they relate to intolerance of political differences which falls on both sides of the aisle. Otherwise, it is a great place to be. Marilyn

I suppose all things will always be in flux to a certain extent. We have to decide what we will make of this site, of who and what we will be. It is up to all of us to decide what we want to make of this.

An interesting choice to voice your concerns, but one that does the trick.
Clear words, excellent imagery and rhymes.
I was activery here 7 years ago. I have noticed a big change since I've been back. I just can't put my finger on it.

I agree with you Dean. It has changed a lot since we joined. We have lost many of our top poets and writers. It is what it us and that will change as well. A few have checked back in lately so hang in there. Things will change again. You are still a favorite so smile! LOL Nancy

Couldn't agree more, Dean.
I have come and gone from this site for years. It does ebb and flow. But like most things in life, it too gravitates toward the middle. It's a pity, that as a whole conformity and mediocrity garner the most praise. If you write a piece that makes people raise an eyebrow...
I for one, appreciate the effort that you put into your art.

You are such a fantastic writer and your presentation is amazing, it's an experience like none other to read and feel your work.

I see this piece as having three interpretations: first as a cautionary tale, told in an imaginary kingdom, next as a cautionary tale about fanstory itself, and the need for mutual respect. Lastly, it makes me think about stories I've heard about our own society here in the United States, taking place recently. People seem to feel they have a license now to disrespect others who presumably don't hold the same views. It's a disturbing trend.
Well done, as always!
Carol

Very moving composition three-quarters of this write gripped my attention fully, then ripples in interests, taught me vital grammar skills. Maybe now, I'll have lesser pits.
