better late than never mate, i spent 15 years right in a fog, kicked in the head by a bloody horse, i surfaced at 30 magog, wisdom came a bit late:) Don it was 1960 i was feeding my dads racehorse Gnu extra oats, to make it run faster, like redbull it gives em wings, ask any old cowboy, They the oat fed horses get very springy. horse on steriods almost, feeling their oats is the saying, that's true. So my horse started bucking with me when i was 15. Ambushed by the horse one foot slipped from the stirrup and i fell getting kicked in the head as well. Brain damage and double vision for 15 years till i surfaces at 30, and the fog lifted...

    Some say that wisdom is wasted on youth... others say that age is a waste of wisdom... Anyway, a great delightful poem! Terry

    Ha ha, oh Don, you are the humorous one my friend! I really enjoyed the delightful poem, full of wisdom in itself, right mate? I hope you didn't actually get hit in the head by a horse! Ouch, now that would hurt! I can't tell by your creative writings that you have been though! You are simply brilliant, Great Work!!
