   your poem here

lj-cut with a specific text

   <lj-cut text="my poem">
   your poem here

the underlined text is what you change.

on swearing

i know swearing is using words that strongly make your point (or however you'd want to state that), but some people disagree with the use of swears. so, if you have "the f-word" please put that behind a cut. "damn" and "hell" are just fine. if you have one or two swears (besides "the f-word") in your poem, it's okay not behind a cut.

if you're cutting because of a swear, you might want to say why you're putting it behind a cut.

if you're not sure about something either ask first or put it behind a cut.

any questions?
