Blind


The Spring blew trumpets of color;

    Awesome! I am now a fan of the formerly unfamiliar Mr. Kemp! How often do we look down upon others when in the end there are so many who can look down upon we? This man is a genius poet - and now on my list. (Report) Reply

    Never to feel proud about what one possesses over another; for, spiritual strength of the handicapped can be superior. This is the lesson poet attempts to teach us. Wonderful write, enriched with a matching rhythm. Well done, Sir! (Report) Reply

    Blind Man’s Bluff


    Bust for inequality
    Framed and hung in poverty
    Subject to authority
    Citizen no more

    New world probability
    Pact agreed society
    Can-do possibility
    Fore the days of yore (Report) Reply
