[My second vogon poem is dedicated to my beloved fellow poet and friend, Gershon Wolf, who will probably spend hours trying to translate it!]

I wholeheartedly concur with this line "Mft harte is sdanmiftte that yew arst gwond" no offense to Mr.Wolf.

Are you sure you got the translation? I still haven't heard that GW has it figured out. It's really fairly easy, Caren. My goodness, what a waste of time!!!!!

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! I am descending into my inner chamber of chambers, and I shall not emerge until I have decoded your masterpiece, Milt. See you next century. lol... Thanks for the chuckle before I head to dreamland tonight, my friend. I'll be counting mfts or mftes, as the case may be. Smiles, Gershon

Glad you found it, Gershon. I thknks it really is decipherable, but I'm not sure. If anyone can do it, you can! When you give up, I'll give you a rough translation!

It looks very complicated... For some reason it made me laugh... Clever you. I wonder if Gershon has worked it out.

I haven't heard from Gershon, so I don't know whether he has read it or not. Actually, it probably can be figured out, I think...I thinc...I chenk. Thanks so much for your read and your comment.
