Gershon, Such a nice poem to find this morning. I can see the myriad soup cans held in revelry. The flags waving in the breeze pleading 'Don't Tread On Me'. Love it. -Richard

It sure does take a lot of differences to make the world go around doesn't it. I used to explain it to my kids this way, A stew is so good for you but if you just eat all meat and no veggies you are going to get very sick. You need green beans and leafy things, orange carrots, red tomatoes, white potatoes, yellow corn, purple cabbage, etc. to make it taste soooooo good. Wouldn't life be dull without so many differences. Great write. God Bless, JB

Zebras on my mind; so was Shirley Temple. Thanks, Kim. :) Gershon
