Welcome, sir, to JUB and the Story Board - and especially the poetry thread.
A powerful poem.
Thank you for sharing it.
I am afraid I must ponder it awhile
as I digest its stile.
For it does turn and flick
and cut one to the quick
And, alas, 'tis late,
for my nightly date.
To be I must be off,
but your words I do NOT scoff.
Thank you, again, for sharing this haunting verse.
(Lefty, I didn't ignore you. I was headed to bed and got sidetracked.
Later, my fellow jesting jouster, for I fear your words are also somewhat profound.)
