Cheater, Cheater Pumpkin Eater
Cheaters usually never win, but this person did, which isn’t a very good life lesson. Apparently, when they were a child, they copied a poem from a book and won first place in a poetry contest with said poem. The very definition of plagiarism. In this case, this cheater won. But at what cost? Exploiting a hardworking poet and depriving them of their much-deserved recognition?
How is this person functioning with such a heinous crime on their conscience? Of course, winning is nice, but not at the expense of others. Thankfully, this person was a child at the time and not an adult. Hopefully, they learned their lesson. Art is not for copying – art is for personal expression! Like it’s said, “Steal from the best, but make it your own.”
