very much. You've a good eye for small town life. I knew lots of Bindys when I was that age. It was funny when they came back, they looked the same but they were very different. I never really understood it until I joined the RAF at 21 and went...

A splendid depiction of ourselves as a parasitic blight on Gaia itself. Skilfully done and with possibly the first use of 'Agrestal' I've ever seen in a poem.
