ALAS, POOR LINDA

ALAS, POOR LINDA Alas, poor Linda! I knew her as PD, a poet of infinite interest, of most excellent insight. She has borne the brunt of conflict a thousand times, and now how abhorrent her unannounced dismissal. For we are not punished for the sins committed but for those “perceived” by the keepers of the gladiators graves. So let us raise our bloodied shields, raise riot on their wounded face demand the King we raised to power remove his foot from trampled flower. Return to us her petaled voice lest all be lessened by such loss. John G. Lawless 5/4/2016

Good to have you back Linda. It is a tough job to be the poetry soup "check engine" light.
