Bleak is a well chosen word, my dear. And as I watch the news tonight, it gets even bleaker. Solid job as always with your work. Yes, in World War 2, the premier fight aircraft was the North American P( for pursuit) -51 Mustang which had a top speed of 457 miles per hour, 6 Browning .50 machine guns and the long range of a bomber like a B-17 with the agility of a fighter. It had a Allison engine by Rolls Royce of England. and a racing body from America. It was used also in Korea, my fathers war.

And one duck of many Andrea, along with so many other creatures. I would fine these companies LARGE, and any monies left over from the spill are used to go towards a Spillage Squad so that any nation can react instantly. As there will be other spillages. Congrats on your win >> James

Greetings Andrea: I really can relate 2 this here poem!!! Because you see.... I am the duck, lol. Great poem, well done. I watched last weeks show of Survivor and it was really violent and kind of disfunctional. So much for Paradise Lost (the poem ). Peace: Sheol

It's a heart breaker. Like that commercial showing the guy or gal trying to clean the oil off the duck. Just read you poem "His true love rose." This is frosty cute. Glasses can be very attractive. Her limp is a promise of helplessness, makes her that much more sexy. At least this is the way I read it. As usual, you say so much with your sonnets. Love, Dave
