    And the rest of the world want them to stop whilst Britain and the US are giving them another week to kill as many as possible before even bothering with any verbal negotiation Michael! When I heard that, I truly felt ashamed to be British. It is a sickening and evil asymmetry indeed. Thanks for the platform of your poem to express. We must find the balance again. Talking is the only humane forward, we are not supposed to be barbarians anymore. imo. Tai (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
