    I am learning a lot through your poems. Before reading your poem I searched the internet for an explanation of the meaning of Wayang Kulit and discovered an explanation of shadow puppets. It helped me appreciate the thoroughness and emphases of your poem. The dalang is certainly a talented person. You make a good point in your ending (ability to poke fun at everyone) . Of course, I am thinking of politicians. (Report) Reply
