    SO TRUE. I see Mr. Thornton visited you on this one. He writes in a similar style to you. What I like about you, though, is that you comment back to me~and often!! Thanks for that, jon.

    Thank you Kathryn. I think I rewrote this poem about four times before I was happy with it.

    At 83 years I barely recognize the world of today. Nihilism seems a fit description. Good write. There will be one more poem to my Masked Ball. Love, daver

    Hey Jon...love this one, so true! Anarchy isn't alway the best solution, and at times it can be misinterpreted. Thanks for the comment, now I'll have to remove it although it wasn't aimed at anyone on the Soup.:( Nice to read your work, very clever! Mikki

    I thought I was replying to Terry and didn't realize until after I hit reply that my comment showed up in your window.

    Thank you for your comment Terry, I've revised this poem several times since my first write. There are some poems that I'm not happy with on my first write and I keep revising them until I finally find the right words in the right order.

    Jon, that is very true!!! And, unfortunately, very likely to happen... Very good, insightful poem... Terry (BTW, 'Fantasy' was a 'category', within which I included (only) "Sleepless in Whereis"... Thanks for your interest and all your kind comments!)
