Excellent poem, really made

Posted on Tue, 16 Apr 2019

Excellent poem, really made me think. There is something sad about the idea of us just passing through but that is what we are all doing isn't it. All those plastic Little Tyke wendy houses people buy for their kids are destined to outlive us all...

Posted on Sun, 17 Mar 2019

It's a fail of a tale we teach our kids. Bad deeds will be punished, if not in life then in hell, look around it's easy to tell, the few reap what the many broke their backs to sow with next to nothing there to show.
