A fantastic read David. As kids here in Lancashire, we too used to dress one of our gang up as a guy, but never of course with such tragic results. As soon as I read, ' we sat her at the top' I knew what was going to happen, but this didn't lessen the suspense; on the contrary, it heightened it. I like narrative poetry, and have written a couple of what I've called Ballads. If you'd like to read one I would recommend, 'The Ballad of Ronnie Dunwoody'. Best wishes, John

Remarkably written narrative and a sad, moving, and tragic tale. It has all the elements of mystery, twists, and tragedy, and nostalgia in the end. You are a master poet and an artist.
