fractalcore-
Thanks a bunch.  Glad you like it.
 — JKWeb

    Your Ars longa, vita brevis so continue on maestro... j.g. smiles
 — goeszon

when you cut and run there is a lingering affair that makes folks pinch there nose and stare -- nice visuals -- I'd imagine that you ran with scissors fairly often while engaged as a medic -- well done Doc!
 — AlchemiA

Hey Web, nice puzzle. But change the title, dude.
 — NicMichaels

Thank you for reading and comment...
Ars longa,
vita brevis,
occasio praeceps,
experimentum periculosum,
iudicium difficile

AlchemiA-
Thanks for reading and cool crit.
Much appreciated.
 — JKWeb

NicMichaels-
Glad you like the "puzzle" aspect.  The title has evaded me like a scissor rip.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
 — JKWeb

Hmmm. U could go tangental with something like "Eat your vegetables" or take it to the level of metaphor and name the poem after some adult-sized screwup like "Foreclosure." Modern, "Scissorplay." Or how about just "Snip."
 — NicMichaels

Thanks for the suggestions NicMichaels but I was thinking along the lines of:
'It's not a Baton'
I was thinking relay race or something like that.  What do you think?
 — JKWeb

How about something like "If your friends told you to jump off a cliff, would you?" or "She also told me to Eat my Vegetables" or some other play on the common "mom-isms" we moms like to use on our children.
 — Tandisol

Tandisol-
Thanks for re-looking and suggestions.  Still pondering.......
 — JKWeb

Relay race? Ya lost me.
 — NicMichaels

Cool!
 — BxPR

NicMichaels-
Thanks again.  In a relay, the runners run and pass the baton hence:
'It's not a baton'
Anyway, shall stick with this title for the time being...and ponder more
 — JKWeb

BxPR-
Thanks for reading and nice brief comment.
 — JKWeb

I wish it had a better title, but it's still nice. :3 Kudos.
 — irisiis

irisiis-
Thanks for reading and comment.  Actually, I was thinking of a re-title today...maybe something like 'Snippet' ...hmmm.  Anyway, thanks again.
 — JKWeb

Oh, you can't hide from us, we know who does the best art poems!  Another good one!   I dropped a scissors on my big toe, once, it went right down to the bone and stood up straight!  I couldn't even believe it!  I still have the scar!  I wasn't even running!  hahaha!
 — Isabelle5

Isabelle-
     Ouch! Thanks for reading and the nice words.  
 — JKWeb

This one's a CUT above the REST!  Hehe.  Very cool how u do THAT, JK!  Isabelle's little account just made my genitals shrink (for a second.)  Yikes!  :-O

Egy lépés, egy pár olló
 — JKWeb

that's, what, hungarian? can you write poetry in hungarian? i'll bet it would kick-ass if you could: you'd have to make it dance the dance.

Thanks pants-
I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.

A very precise and appropriate 'shape poem', if you did not alread know.
It cuts...deeply to the fertile south of being while giving tribute to its original giver.
Thank you!
 — unknown
