    Its not just a poem ever lasting history experience of every human in certain age and stage, Dorothy Parker understood the worse on the name of the Love. The poet is most eligible for more regards and appreciation in my long words to the very short but sweet and hot poem (Report) Reply

    anticipating a marvelous quip (Report) Reply
