Very twisted poem, I like it! It would be hard for some due to the words of course that is what the poem was relating to books and learning, if you dig deep enough it even talks about where the paper comes from lol. It reminds me of one I have written, however, I cannot get in to share any of my poems! I do have a couple on my web-site feel free to come by and read them. Thank you!
