A fine poem that shows, in a few words, what happens when parents are greedy and selfish. I can't imagine cheating my daughter like they did their son. Elton

I love your little poem with its interesting twist to include neglectful parents.

Nice one Carolyn! Good luck in the contest. Thanks for your kind support this last while. I've been pretty sick and unable to keep up with my PS friends. Read your comment to Sara. Young cheese is nice but aged cheese has a richer flavor. Love, Will

This is a GREAT entry, and a great subject choice. Left me smiling. As to your question. I am a B.C. Eagle Fan, but I lived in FL for a few years, and while there learned of the intense rivalry between FL teams. I can say w/ certainty that the gators and the canes would be none to pleased to find out the noles were getting help from above. lol. P.S. Is your fear of gators football related,because there are some BIG bass to be caught in the everglades.

smile -- you know, this all makes myself consider the lyrics of an old song by a group called, Bad Company, wherein the theme does go, 'don't you know that you are a shooting star and, all the world will love you just as long, as you are, a shooting star' ~ i truly admire and love the variety which i often find amid, "Your Beauties," well crafted and lovely creations my dear; such a brightened gift of a sweetened poetic brush, "Your Splendours," thus does hold ~ my love, Always, christopher ~

smile -- wonderfully spoken glimpse amid in part memories trail within a twist of sweet wisdom laced in ironics humour i might say perhaps my dear, "Precious & Priceless, 'Beautiful, Carolyn Devonshire.'" ~ Pour Macaulay, left alone and then alone but, oblivious unto the plights in historics records of, a once upon a times child actor now left standing without, a script in hand to read but yes, amid comfort in not wanting perhaps, he does so live -- cont:)

Hi Carolyn. The best of luck in the contest with this fine piece. I have been off site for a while as I have been on holiday then came back to a very busy time. We are playing music nearly every night ant that, combined with work leaves me little time. We also go on tour to Germany in 4 weeks so organising travel and accommodation for that. Thanks for the comment. will catch up soon. Eamon

Humanoid is purely fictional poem, Carolyn.Nothing to do with my personal life.It's on the subject Third eye or spirit eye. Of course not for the contest.

I guess you could call Culkin an emancipated minor but the divorce must have been real embarassing for his parents. As the movie title said now he is home alone. Funny twist for the contest. Good luck!
