another splendid effort George. your poetic temperament is certainly that of an archeologist's. you leave no stone unturned in this one, unearthing so many glow worms to light our way.

dang it! we fail to see ourselves because we make excuses..we lie to ourselves for our heart-failings..but we can SEE, we just need to overcome the need to believe we are all good. Brilliant!

Your last stanza nails it. Great write.

Well said, George. That word "strut" is so descriptive, a vivid beginning image to this poem. You present us with our very human methods of figuring out our very human foibles. I agree with Linda Fuller about that last stanza. Congrats on POTD!

Excellent analysis of the human condition, George. Strong opening stanza drew me right in and continued to the finish. Don't know how I missed this one in 2009, but better late than never. Congrats also on POTD...well deserved!

congratulations George on POTD. I feel any one of your poems can and should be POTD. Your poetry should be required reading for human beings, give there is much humanity in each and every poem.

Don't know how I missed this gem the first time around, George. My bad. Glad I got a shot at redemption!
