    I thought I would come to see your first post here. Have you been writing long? I saw you commented to someone below that you wrote this in ten min. I have only had a few poems come to me that way in the 14 years that I've been writing! You did a great job in such short time, this is so eerie and for me it could have several interpretations. Very deep! Have I read your stuff before? If not, I hope to see more of you.

    Good morning Andrea. Thank you for being here. Thank you for going back to my first post, and yes, this is one of those poems which more or less wrote itself. There isn't many like that for sure. I wrote it quickly, but I edited it quite extensively. You may have read me before. I was on FanStory a few years ago, and have been on a few other poetry sites like Authors Den.

    Jerry, this is a rich and gracefully flowing work, and I enjoyed floating along with it, not wanting it to end. It's also kind of scary.

    I was trying for the ancient and evil, Daver. This poem was written in less than ten minutes. It was as though I was possessed. Thank you for your kind words.

    First;y I would like to welcome you to the soup and thank you for your lovely comment on my poem. I have to admit that this poem is over my head. But this poem is a captivating and stern warning for some unfortunate souls. Well done.

    Hi Jerry This is an intruiging poem. It almost has a mural quality the way the ideas as images leap out. Welcome to poetry soup. If you have any questions about finding stuff on site you can send a Soupmail to any of us. The little icon appears to the right of our names at the top of our pages. It is a little envelope with a soup cup. Enjoy. SuZ

    This made me think of the poem, The Destruction of Senacharib. This is a very powerful piece of writing and a great way to introduce yourself to the soup. Welcome new friend, you will fit in nicely. Thanks for your visit and comment.

    Thank you Richard I think Senacharib was a king of Assyria but I'm not familiar with the poem you referenced. I'll have to read it. Thanks for sharing with Jerry.
