Going's and happenings

I wot of maifaire said the man where people sell Upon the green where are leafy boughed trees seen There stand thegen; reeve; and fat geese lay, there People do sport and horses neigh Just follow down the earthen track you will see it where the colored buntings flap.' Wow so this is Mayfair the tourist said, place of Bustle place of style, of well paved streets place Of happening and moment , Its great to see the glitz and glitter the glazed iced Cakes and Impersonal titter; the endless roar of fervid hordes Here is everything man adores.' Its so fullfillng Its really grand to think I stand on such august a spot just an Iowa man.' I'm already feeling the culture seep in, I'll return Home more like Milton I can feel it in my skin.' In the service yord of a Mayfair hotel people huddle Homless almost hopeless craving warmth they lay Under slate or skies of blue its all the same The pavement is hard whatever the weather they find Five years you must live near; around or a place Will not be yours 'never mind' it was David Cameron Who gifted them so, and it was not expensive I have Been informed tis a most baneful woe'

Hello Joe, I am in awe of your poem. It is so rich with an accent I can feel even through your 'written words.' I would really love to hear it in audio. I simply receive your message as it was given. Thanks, Reta.

Hi Joe, I think I got the main idea, I'm not sure and is that you have to enjoy life when things are going and happening. You shouldn't care if it's good things or bad. At least it means you're alive....

That is a sign of a good art, everybody will pick something from it.

All different people see things not apparant to others, you have a take on part of my intentions, and you show ma a part that seems to have written itself, but that is part of the life interaction of words & emotions, Pashang I wrote in part to show the peculiar and commonplace are part of history and can be viewed either way by people who are and were alive..' So good to hear from you..'
