I came across this on the Internet:
 
LONGEST POEM ON EARTH WRITTEN BY NIKHIL PAREKH
Longest poem written on earth, ONLY AS LIFE composed by prolific Indian Poet Nikhil Parekh, measures a Herculean, 1470 lines, 1100 stanzas, 7900 words, 38,900 characters (without spaces). It is also exclusively the first of its kind in pure poetry fraternity and English language; without containing the most infinitesimal of elements of dramatic theater/stage plays/ dramas/ conventional theater/ stage sequels/opera performances.. etc. This makes it the longest on earth in the 21st Century and English Language, weaving through countless lines of immortal love and life; wholesomely and irrefutably distinguishing it from conventional theater/dramatic philosophies/poetic plays/poetic memoirs/personal biographies/ plays/ancient scripts.

 
My response was in the form of a poem:
 
Brief Encounter
 
Something wrong?
Why so long?
 
Read it now
Or postpone?
 
Better yet,
Stay away
And say good-bye?
 
So long!
