Interesting, MC.
Marlborough, of course, defeated the French/ Bavarians at Blindheim (Blenheim) a few years later halting French expensionist designs on Vienna.
As every one knows a Marlborough Man is a Real Man.

Well, I'll tell ya...
I have wanted to delete fb sooo many times - have deactivated on numerous occasions. I have a love/hate relationship with fb. I only stay because it's a convenient way to keep in touch and contact those I don't see often. There are only very few that I have not met in person, but 'know' them from here - everyone else I know personally.

So there you have it !

Should I post this as my status now?

Graham,
An excellent windily evocatove poem,I could feel the very wind in my hair reading it.
And `slap`is exactly right for the sea-whack. The whole thing moves.

Maybe `maelstrom` over-eggs it a bit, (but that`s only a quibble)

Fresh! man, fresh!

whatever happened not to
the transylvanian twist-but purple hearts?
they were the sixties club-goers delight!

We speak as two,now relegated
to bleedin' paracetamols-ugh!

Enjoyed this Lauren.

Thank you Lynn for commenting on my poem 'Dusty Tears'.
I love your poem here and I have noticed that you do Irony so beautifully and with precision.
As poets, I believe that we have the chance to elicit change even by winning over only one heart at a time, and it is like a pebble in a pond.
Keep throwing those pebbles.

Thank you Tom for taking the time to comment on my 'Dusty Tears'. Tom Waits is a big influence on me along with Charles Bukowski and I am humbled that you picked up on this.
I was drawn to your poem here because of the title; it immediately took me to a place in my mind that holds the key to many good memories.
I love your reference to 'Ocrams razor'. I should have employed this principle many times in the past it would have made life so much more simple.
The last stanza is so strong and like holding a mirror to my soul. I love this poem and your picture that accompanies it.
Thank you Tom
Pete

Protest Away My Friend...at least there seems plenty of things to be able to protest about?
Nice rhyming couplets...
Clever use of words, ie 'Too busy making fact out of rumour'...
Good Humour!

That under the bed was a Red

Then created credit dependency
And led us to war instead.

It certainly would be great to swim with dolphins. Thanks again guys. :o)
