Kenneth, this is a self fulfilling resident "to be" poem. The postulate is so exacting a book on the premise. The clever juxtaposition of title and verse only serves to accent the point. I could go on, but, I’d refer you to your verse to make my points, and that, as Bill O’Reilly would say, “Would be ridiculous”. Nice thinker!!

Ken: Who can pass up a title like this? Certainly not I! I note that your title exceeds the body of the poem by 20 letters? Très drôle! Now that's brevity. A laugh is something I sorely needed this morning, so thank you! If there were a prize for the shortest poem on record at TPL, I think you would win it with this one, hands down. Nice work! And I cannot possibly write a long-winded critique. So we are both spared. ;-) Smiles, Joanne

Kenneth, You have quite a sense of humor! It's true...It is. Only you could get away with it! You'll probably take first prize. You have the grit.......... Keep on Dellena

Kenneth, You have outdone yourself (smile). You made me seriously laugh. When I saw this poem's title, I didn't even click on it right away. I just sat here thining long and hard: What on earth could it be? What will these few poetic words be. See how you have made me think. Poetry is a beautiful thing, and it's no wonder that titles work well with the work. Because the root or meet of this poem is the title itself. You make me think of how it could be written backwards as follows and still mean so much: IT'S TRUE. IT IS A poem with a title longer than itself (ha-ha) You probably think I'm crazy now. Thanks for breaking the ice with this one. Although I've probably read quite a few poems with longer titles like senryu and haiku, I never quite thought about. So, your poem has truly provoked my thoughts. It makes you wanna just look all over for poems with long titles. I'm not sure if that was your aim or intention (smile), but you push a lot of buttons with this poem. Inquiring minds definitely want to know, and you're right: "It's true. Its." Great job. Latorial

Kenneth, How clever of you, I love your sense of humor, and believe it or not, I had to really stop and think about this, see-right in front of me, if it had been a stick it would have hit me. Thank you for the mind jolt and for bringing this delicious piece of humor to us. Bravo! Lora

Dear Ken, This is just too much fun, really -I'm sitting here laughing and it feels good. Thank you for posting this. What to say, what to say? Hmmm, good structure, spelling is perfected, and although there is no rhyming scheme it seems to work in this piece. Could this be the shortest poem ever written? Of course you have inspired thoughts as to what it is that is true. Wonderful, imaginative, the humor of it is greatly appreciated, and your title fits well. Thank you again for making me smile.

It is what? I can tell you one takes nerve to post a piece like this, and I don't mean that in a bad way!What ever made you think of this? Were you bored or had a lack of the muse?

Hi Kenneth; I have liked these kinds of simple word poems since I was a of my favorites is: A man was born, he was. The man died, he was. It's true, it short sweet true and a mini-celebration of the quirkiness of language.....I like it.. Thanks for the entertainment Gerard

Silly you. Indeed the title is much longer then the poem is it not? Of course.......It's true, it is...... Hope you are well, enjoying this rather hot, humid summer here in New England. I pray winter stays away for many months to come.......thanks for posting, sharing and caring. God Bless, Claire
