FRAUD AND THIEF
There is a FRAUD and a THIEF
Apparently from Nigeria
Who plagiarizes all day long
He steals poetry for pleasure
And post on internet
Under his own name
His favorite source is
And who could blame him
We are the best cauldron
Of international poets
On the planet.
He goes by the name of ETTAH AUSTINE
And has no integrity, in his profile says:
"As a writer & a creator,
I'm giving you my experiences.
But just take what I give you.
You ain't got to pry beyond that."
The audacity… he’s basically admitting
That he’s stealing and not to ask questions !
ETTAH AUSTINE is a disgrace to POWER POETRY
He even has the gall to post a Leanne Rimes song!!!
They say the greatest form of flattery is theft of a poem
Or is it that the lowest shameless form
Of an excuse for a human being is a thief
We say get this ETTAH AUSTINE off the internet
If you resent having your poetry stolen
They’d love to hear it at

Good point, Kurt, and that's exactly what Power Poetry did. We received the following email from Power Poetry after we sent our email messages to them last night:
"Hello, We apologize that poetry was used without poets' permission on PowerPoetry.org. The offending user has been notified, blocked from PowerPoetry.org, and directed to PowerPoetry’s Note on Plagiarism. All poems connected to the account have been deleted.
