Words Beyond Meaning

It's about... well, I'm not really sure... Anyway, image was made by the Argentine artist Leon Ferrari and is called 'Letter to a General'.

water is the biggest con since the South Sea Bubble. Unless you're at risk of dysentery (no even in Clydebank, eh, Jack?) cholera, or some other disease caused by water that is not potable due to intermingling with sewage, it's a waste of money...

Gold digger alert! We men are such fools, I imagine Donald believes Melania finds him irresistible, (just like Ivana and Marla did too).

Interesting piece.

is definitely the area to mine for your writing. Convincing; it certainly had me in the classroom (probably in a disappearing seat).
Upbeat and uplifting and at this time of year, why not?

you for the roses.
This is artfully done. For me it would be even better if you didn't give the answer to the riddle in the poem itself.
Lovely imagery and phrase-making.
