Tone it down to ''at least for the duration''

Time does our earth presence sever
But the post office is clever  
And offers for sale
For its eternal mail  
A stamp that is good forever

Author's note: The idea that anything associated with this planet will be consumed "forever" is peculiar and laughable.  It is also destructive in that business holds the truth in shadows.

    Hey Duke, just stopping by to say thank you for another very kind comment recently; especially for sharing some personal information with me, that is deeply admirable and appreciated. :) We certainly do have things in common, I have experienced abuse and have mental illness as a result, so I struggle every day because of it, but much like you, I still and will always consider myself a blessed and lucky person, merely because I am alive and breathing. :) You continue to warm my heart...

    I really should stock up and get a whole BUNCH of those forever stamps. Now if they would just do forever packaging for all those expensive costs I have to pay at Xmas time!! Nice one.
