The following comments are for "Simba, or The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by verve
I had the nickname Simba for a while. (I probably would have kept it if Disney hadn't spoilt it by releasing The Lion King; it was pretty unique back then) (I won't explain how I got it either - maybe another time)
So yes. With that title staring at me from the front page, I had to come and read this poem. Oh, that, and the fact that it was written by Verve, who has penned some of the finest poetry this site has to offer. How could I refuse?
And this is another goodie. I've already got one or two of yours in my favorites list, but this one may well follow. You've made the poem feel almost as soft as the fur in those photos. A great acheivment. A wonderful dreamy, lazy poem.
Best line: "bilberry tongue". Perfect.
Thank you :)

Wow. I don't know what to say, heh. That's quite possibly the nicest comment anyone's ever given me.
