We're beasts of burden
Like asses and mules
We've stubborn streaks
We break the rules
We cooperate
We compromise
But unlike animals
We tell lies

    Jon: Right to the heart of issue in plain, but poetic speech. Short and sweet. I love it. I tightened up my quatrain, "Patterns and Prose."Maybe you could take a look and tell me what you think. I also posted another poem, kind of dark called "Dying with Regret." Mark

    I wish I could find a title that i like for this poem. I have only a couple and don't really like either one. They were "Contrary" and "Who let the dogs out" I need one deceptively misleading and funny.
