You express yourself quite well, David, and your poem especially fits this time of year.

Fascinating form and most effective, with an important reminder.

Much food for thought in just a few lines here David. I ride the buses here in Ottawa almost every day, and I do see a lot of long faces, especially going into work in the morning. As Leonard Cohen once wrote, "everybody knows the deal is rotten."

Unfortunately true and most people don't realize it. Aargh...Chelle puts down the mirror to get less depressed... You've written my story here, at least in the last 2 lines of the first stanza.

A great social commentary that certainly fits our day. A prick to the conscious! As a Christian do I live too well with so many in the world suffering?
