Each time I post on my blog I send a group email message to about 20 friends with the link to my most recent piece. For the “Best breed of bird dog” posting uploaded March 12 ( the group email message included this  disclaimer:

Robert Service, “The Bard of the Yukon,” was once criticized for writing puerile poetry. “I don’t write poetry,” he said. “I write verse.” This isn’t poetry, it’s verse.

One friend replied: “This piece is neither poetry nor verse.  It is doggerel.”

Well, yeah.
