    Awesome! I am now a fan of the formerly unfamiliar Mr. Kemp! How often do we look down upon others when in the end there are so many who can look down upon we? This man is a genius poet - and now on my list. (Report) Reply

    Blind Man’s Bluff

    Bust for inequality
    Framed and hung in poverty
    Subject to authority
    Citizen no more

    New world probability
    Pact agreed society
    Can-do possibility
    Fore the days of yore
