Reviews for Doing What I Have to Do

I took your advice and read Temptation first. First I have to thank you for introducing and explaining these different forms of poetry. I feel my education has been sorely lacking. I liked the way the second line in each stanza becomes the first line in the next.

I am very much impressed with your skill and cleverness in capturing the characters. The dark eeriness of this one is enhanced by the repetition.

Of course the names of these poetic styles fit just perfectly. Who else would be the featured character in a Villanelle or a Pantoum? Ha! So clever! Now I need to find an English major to share this with.

Danny has a little too much fun sometimes, in the course of his duties. The phrase "misplaced aggression" comes to mind...

Wow, I've never read a pantoum before. Cool. Good job.

Your meter is perfect - all I can do is try. Seven syllables a line? I'm just...

You can tell Danny's really tired, and the driving rhythm of the poem does imply it. Thanks for the 'Danny Pantoum' thing, I'll be using it a lot from now on. XD

Scribere jussit amor.

Woah - cool. I've never heard of this style of poetry before. I agree with you - it fits Danny, and it was well written. I like it!

WAI! I love it when the good guy gets a little off-balanced in the head. :X Their physical and emotional pain makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Poor Ed... :/ Er, Danny. Both. Bah.
