I do not hold my nose when reading any genre and I do not sneer at music
that is not classical.  If I liked it, I would like it and apologize to no
one and recommend it to others.  I do not sneer at people who love things I
don't like or even hate.  The cold, hard fact is that I just don't like
most things, whether it's music or not.  Picky from birth, Mama said.

No criticism of the poem, from you or anyone, is going to convince me not
to like it.  You don't.  Fine.  Enough said.   bill w
