Oh yes........one of your ''shorter'' pieces huh? ? Very funny! I think this was a wonderful story Herbert. I love how it came around to P/H. I didn't expect that. A good lesson in there too... Great poem. Sincerely, Mary

Hilarious and insightful. Some stinging lines, but that's the whole point. It certainly gets me. Julia

Herbert, as usual you have delighted me. What fun...and what a lot of rhyme! I'm not sure how I feel about having my name dropped in a poem so full of bird poo...but everything came out alright so it's ok. :) Raynette

Good one Herbert, despite my disdain toward narrative poetry. But I believe we've been down that road before? As that towering intellect Paul Hogan, might say in the circumstances: 'avagoodone.' Cheers, Jerry
