Say! You've struck a heap of trouble --
Bust in business, lost your wife;
No one cares a cent about you,

    Is there a more foolish poem than this! Every policeman dealing with a suicide is told to point out the blue sky and that God is love. If I were in the desperate state of this man, and Service came to me with this nonsense, I would be perfectly in my right to knock him on the head and steal his purse. People in despair need real help not daft anodyne wishy-washy sentiments. The Good Samaritan gave real practical help to the mugging victim in the parable.

    We can always rejoice in God's glory.

    True God is love, love that peom!

    Or, as the great Eric Idle put it... 'always look on the bright side of life...'!

    Great poem, full of positivity and perspective. Regardless of individual faith or beliefs, the message in this poem is still very relevant today.

  • Pranab K Chakraborty (8/11/2011 12:15:00 AM)

    First stanza attracts loudly but after that it flows with the conventional way of projecting universal life where a singular is also tied hard with the same thread. Truth has been uttered freely.

  • Riekairu Calo (8/11/2010 11:41:00 PM)
