A microcosom of life - this is what we are but the poem is great in making us stop and ask the question - what am I doing, really?

It made me laugh! I find it's often the attitude of people on any site, not just this, that is all about me me me and they don't give anything, except to curry favour, which isn't really giving, it's trying to take. It should be about the poems themselves but the way some people skim over lesser known people without commenting or encouraging (if it's deserved) is pretty nauseating.

Ha - I did think about something along those lines Paul - that was the only thing missing.

The poem is about WOL weariness, which can quite often mirror world weariness. It isn't a good poem but it reflects quite well how I was feeling on Friday 21st January at 10.00 pm. :)

I agree with Steve. It's the nature of the electronic world that people become invisible more easily than in the 'real' physical world. A powerful, raw poem. The beat goes on, it sweeps us up, but every now and then a different mood comes along, and we stand aside and ask what is happening to people
