    i had a feeling somewhere along the line that it might have had to do with something other than a toy robot. hopefully my uncertainty can be blamed on my being secluded in california, away from the down under political scene......though i did read something about male versus female politics over there.
    i did enjoy the rhyming lines more than the non-rhyming lines so thanks for those!
    i believe you made an error which i have also made. So haves with impunity breath again. i believe an e ending is called for in second-to-the-last word. anyway, thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
