I must admit that I typically shy away from commenting on poetry because it is one of my weakest areas (both in appreciation and in creating), but I wanted to say I really enjoyed this piece. It took my two readings of the opening two stanzas before I could get my mind around the rhythm, but once I got if firmly in mind, and launched into the rest it just seemed to flow perfectly and the message was crystal clear. Very nice job.
Your message is profound. Your writing is eloquent! Each stanza crescendos up to the ending. I think the cymbals clapped with your final word. Love this!!!
Congrats! God bless~
Really great poem Verna. Many congratulations
Superb poem. Many congrats on your EC win.
Congratulations on your EC place which is well deserved for this poem with its sobering, and true, message.
Oh this is so good. Each of your warnings are relevant and the way you used prose to present them is superb!
