The Last Poet

You'll know when you have destroyed a culture,

                
                                         When you have slain their last poet....

 
                                                                                  And forgotten his words!

 

                                                                                  Timothy I. Brumley

    Yes, I would say you are a philosopher and also a sage. Where do you get these profound statements?

    Your title alone was a book worth, "The last poet" now that is a brilliant title, would prick anyone's curiosity.
