    David, you have done a superb job with this one. I was completely drawn in by your descriptions of the father and son. By the end of the poem, I could feel their sorrow.

    Great images, moving. I'm a father myself. Although it was not expressed explicitly how the son loves, respects, feels sorry for the father, it was all there - for me. Perhaps that's how I want my son to see me as well...

    An exceptional write David. This speaks for many souls that worked the land long and hard only to loose it at the end. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Again, nicely done. I especially like the "...Judas with a degree." line. J

    Oh, David, such a sad story of destruction....written wonderfully. I think my fav line is, " …Judas with a degree." That says so much. I am enjoying my time with my son, need to get my esophagus looked at, it sounds so funny, but it sure does not FEEL funny. Hope all is well with you. Love and hugs, Catie :)
