Young Poets

Write as you will
In whatever style you like
Too much blood has run under the bridge
To go on believing
That only one road is right.

In poetry everything is permitted.

With only this condition of course,
You have to improve the blank page.

Who was sicker? The watcher or the watched? This beautiful evocation says more about that unsaid, than in a seemly journalistic script!
I thought this poem incredibly sad- people are so less than animals at times, absolutely piggish in their behavior. The dog is the king in this scene
Ha ha ha She was drunk and so was the man Who kept kissing her neck. The dog got the stick and looked back at us. And that was the whole show.
Amusing write with wonderful but realistic fun part in it. Dog with 6 legs or some thing like that has always been an attraction in a country fair. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
...a late-comer effect, though as nostalgically painful, from the day, when the first automatical weaving stools were taken into use on April 19,1805? ?
