Reinhard Stobbe

An English Poem

A sheep grows wool and is quite dumb
a lamb becomes a sheep.
Small numbers swell into a sum
sum totals are to keep.

A boy sprouts hair and soon grows tall
a man was once a boy,
all men predictably will fall
like a discarded toy.

Philosophies they come and go
take over silly minds,
it's not the whom but what they know,
it's all in their behinds.

    Not bad fur a furriner. while I agree with Jefferson, I don't think you need much help. You have a sense of humor, and you can tell good poetry from crap, which is something most of the people on the Forum can't do.

    The last verse of your poem says something, although the first two seem to have lost a little in translation.
