A heartwarming story! Your kindness and care towards the cats is impressive and worthy. Kindness towards animals is, in my opinion, a sign of innate goodness, to be respected!

There is a nice feeling to this poem. It almost makes me wish I had been a bit older in 1970 and could remember it better! But youth can be at any time. All of us experience these moments when we are free, or optimistic, carefree.

I did enjoy this continuation

Posted on Thu, 21 Apr 2022

I did enjoy this continuation of your Pointless saga, and Boris's continued lucky escape. It is nice to know that the French Revolution hasn't actually finished yet, but I think Boris has far more than 9 lives! He is a miracle man, who, just when...

Wow! This is very good Di Hard. An allegory which shows the current conflict in Ukraine and the world, in a very intelligent way. I am pretty sure I know who the Clever King is, very topical, but there are a few candidates for who the Richest Man...

I enjoyed your poem. Its a great idea, looking at your life backwards through a prism, and you certainly do that very effectively. Well chosen words!

I would be interested now to see what your earlier version of this poem was, before you...

In the early stages of this invasion I wondered whether the Russians would have avoided invasion if they had been offered to keep their 2014 conquests with the neutrality of Ukraine, or might even then make a quick deal. But really the invasion...
