    In the playground
    at school;
    a small boy
    with a paper bag
    stuffed with sweets

    The other children
    never ask
    for share;
    the small boy
    never offered

    Inside
    the cavernous mouth;
    inflamed gums,
    tiny teeth as black as
    old grave stones

    This is wisdom reduced to a mere few words - but wisdom nevertheless, and thank you for sharing this Marvin in so precise a way that it will likely be remembered too........10 from Fay along with warm wishes from Cornwall U.K. (Report)Reply
