Supporters' attention hour after hour
Some are abstaining from absorbing
And did determine he is disturbing
Has neither patience nor will-power.

Who never utters a complaint

On kvetching to keep them alive.

HE, HIMSELF, DEATH
by Adam Parker

Constructed this dark legacy,
Possessed the air of leprosy

WAR OF WORDS
by Hazel Connelly
Wrestling with his conscience
Abstaining from verbal exchange
Regretting his words

Offended by obscenities
Forgetting his ticket

What is happening now?
Obnoxious little men
Rallying in no mans land
Dire Consequences
Spasmodic verbal abuse.
