    Wow – this poem still blows me away Paul. It was another one of the early poems you submitted (or did I ask for it off Twitter?). Anyway – this poem is a stunning meditation on contemporary times.

    I agree, very clever with a nice touch of humour. In the context of the articles, there is resolve and spirit coming through.
