    In the playground
    at school;
    a small boy
    with a paper bag
    stuffed with sweets

    The other children
    never ask
    for share;
    the small boy
    never offered

    Inside
    the cavernous mouth;
    inflamed gums,
    tiny teeth as black as
    old grave stones (Report) Reply

    short and sweet...that's wisdom compressed! Just imagine if all poets kept their best poems to themselves, what our world would be like... (Report) Reply

    This is wisdom reduced to a mere few words - but wisdom nevertheless, and thank you for sharing this Marvin in so precise a way that it will likely be remembered too........10 from Fay along with warm wishes from Cornwall U.K. (Report) Reply
