ode to a pillow

Ode to a pillow Oh pillow ! Your dexterity astounds me You bolster the head of the destitute and the deep-pocketed The hangman and the internee The blooming and the senescent The caretaker and the tsar The analphabetic and the scholar Yet none could serene sleep savor Except those with a clear conscience ardor. Abdelwaheb Dhaou.

My friend, I enjoy your words and you misunderstood my comment. You said only those with a clear conscience sleep. I simply meant to imply I got your work and I have a clear conscience. I was trying to be clever. If I have misunderstood I owe and give you deep apologies. I was in a strange, lonely mood yesterday and I hope it has not discredited me. But let me be clear now. You are a skilled and gifted write that I enjoying reading!

when I said only those with a clear conscience..I was trying to be sarcastic as I like to mix sarcasm with serious tone in almost every work I launch.... No problem again ... You are twice as skilled and gifted and your poems are a real marvel without flattery !
