My Haiku NOT Mentioned

I wasn't very pleased to see that my haiku did not rate a mention in the review of the Haiku Bindii journal. You will remember that Lynettea used some of my haiku in the book without crediting me. I feel sure that if my name had been credited I would have done better. I notice that no poems with cats in them have been quoted.
Lynettea was very pleased with the review and ignored my feelings. When I complained she said, 'Don't be silly Diamond, It is a good review and a lot of poems are quoted.'
I am not silly.
Review of Haiku Bindii

You are not silly! What a pity your haiku were not mentioned, Diamond. Since no poems with cats were quoted, we have no other choice than to believe that there is some sort of anti-feline bias by Haiku Bindii journal. And that is a shame.

Well, for about two seconds I thought it was a pretty good review, even without mentioning any cat haikus - and then I saw they mentioned one about a DOG! Who ARE these critics? Are they INSANE! ARRGH!

Dear Diamond,
Please do not be angry, but me has to agree with Lynette! It is a great review and me was pleased that they mentioned Lynette a few times.

I think the reviewer should have mentioned your haiku, Diamond. I am sure that you wrote the best ones.

It would have been better to see YOUR name in print, Diamond. But don't worry, there is an award for you at my blog this week - see Tuesday's post.
