To say so much with such conservation is power few possess, Carol. I would take me at least three quatrain. I greatly admire those with your knack. Yes, it would be a great salvation from madness to pre-own its cure; though, I'm not quite there yet..LOL! Typically, the=is form requires no caps or punctuation, so I did not gift full points, though that could be easily set, if you've a mind to. Regardless, I love it and look forward to reading more of your pieces. Thank you, Dear Poetess! Rascal

Reads almost like a passage out of the Book of Ecclesiastes. One line, but it says a lot.

Well, the other day they said that people who are diabetic are at increased risk for Alzheimer's Disease..So too much glucose floating in one's blood is one reason...Enjoyed reading this afternoon..If for a contest, good luck..Thanks for the faithfulness in reviewing my work..Sara

maybe it's better not to know if you can't do anything to stop it anyway!
