    Life is hard
    But so are plates
    And tea can be quite hot,
    And vegetarian poets
    Make me nervous quite a lot.
    an interesting poem. tony

    Like almost all his poems, this is very touching my heart, such a thought-ptovoking poem, philosophical and beauteous! Short poem, but croppy well told (brevity best told)
