The Impact

Arising from my humble 
  on the Lower East Side
I send out my messages 
      Intending to trouble the "wise and the great"
  with my words 
Icy winds will soon 
     be blowing here 
  but the words keep coming 
They - As I said - are reaching the brains 
    of the "wise and the great" 
    What impact they will have 
   is known to 
   Once you are out there 
you are "EXPOSED"

    I sure like this one, matt. How are YOU in NY right now? It must be very strange there.

    Most of the times the wise and the great arent themselves. Great thought, Matthew. Thanks for stopping by at my page :)

    Just the sort of write to do Matthew, a joy to read you this morning. How are you coping there? I wish Gods blessing on you through the storm and beyond."

    Once they are out there, one can't bring those words back for sure..Someone would remember what was said in print or orally spoken..Enjoyed reading your work..It is a great topic and good presentation..Thanks for stopping by my work..We are on the outer edges of the storm but I don't know if Sandy is causing the wind here or if it is because of the jet stream being located where it is or if it is a combination..Sara
