    how very strange. today i wrote wrote a short poem which ended in rose, using the same definition! also i recently read a poem (also short, by Kim Barney, Which Doctor?) in which he mentions the doctor's bill!

    is Lil lucky [doesn't have to pay bill now] or not? you be the judge!

    Everything has been commercialized, whether it's medicine, education or any other respectable profession. I remember my teen age when doctors prescribed very few patient medicines, when teachers took extra classes to complete the course. Our generation is the last generation socialized by honest men. A great poem! ............10 (Report) Reply
