This was an interesting story wrapped up in the arms of poetry, and I should have guessed that it was true. Haunting tales such as this usually do hold a grain of truth.

I kind of know where you're coming from here.
It'd be much simpler and quicker if all poems were shorter to be able to read and comment but life isn't like that and poets have a choice. :-)

It is witty and i like it.

Some oddly fascinating imagery in this poem Cynthia. A bit gruesome for the feint hearted i would think.

Marrianne, when you have a moment, will you enlarge just a bit on the word 'startling' in reference to my work. I am intrigued to know what you mean.

Thanks for you comment on 'Cramping...' - that one holds such painful memories now! I stuffed it up really badly in Wigan. The middle page went missing and my mind went blank. Have you ever had to go from the intro to the end with no middle in front of a live audience? Not an experience I'd recommend - tee hee - glad you weren't there to hear it - I think you were on in Hebden - hope it went better for you.

Nefertiti - that's a cracking crack at BNP - pity it couldnt stand for British National Poet - we've no need for the nauseating hypoctites that spout their racist politics.

Every New Year rings in hope... it is up to each individual to make the best of their resolutions and opportunities...
Sad though that many end up celebrating blindly without the motivation to make their magic happen...

You have it expressed it well...

Tellement triste...
'we go alone
Closer to authority
To fire
To burn or to freeze
The question stirs
An unease
In mortality thinking
People huddled
We talked, we tired
We tied bonds
And we cried
to escape the thoughts'

Très bien fait Peter!

Fantastique Peter...
Pleins de belles images...et de tristesse...
'Only my own hand to hold
scared
Crying
Crying because I see emptiness now
and I know I could do better.
There were once swathes of sunlight here.
But alas I fear too late.'

These lines are very poignant:
'Without the lesson in love
Nothing
And the birds and bees
Kept deathly silent
And mother suppressed
Vocal violence'
says so much... I feel the pain...

Hi Scott - to the point certainly. As these men (and women I guess) fell they to be part of a disaster movie (non human, maybe a CG effect). It couldn't really be happening could it? like the finality of human frailty contrasting the religeous phrases. his is not risen. Winston

cheers Win for the suggestion on my poem 'Revenge''... Lot to think about with that piece as I actually wrote in about 5 - 10 mins for a friend shall we say who was having issues after she wouldn't write, so i may well go back another day and rethink it through but for the moment it made her giggle and cheered her up which was the full point behind it!
