Light and heavy at the same time. And it reminded me of Michener's The Source - perhaps because his book put that part of history in perspective for me. Your poem does it in such a more punchy, more effective way - not to mention with many fewer words (LOL).
I'm so glad Todski chose to highlight your poem.
I might have missed this for too long - so glad Todski pointed us to it in PF&D.
I have little to say other than I loved it, loved the way you started in such a serious vein and ended up hitting my laugh button. And I couldn't agree More with Ashesh about the last stanza - it's a hoot!
