    Note to Lori: Just to mention, if you're 'copying and pasting' poems directly from this website, there will be problems with the quotation marks. (also the ''double p'') I have had this problem when I've pasted my poems from here to another place so I thought I'd mention it since I'm sure things are probably rolling along quickly. :)

      Note to Lori from me: Would you keep us all informed about the steps as you take them and confirm (I know this will cost time) just prior to 'execution' meaning the point just before the point of no ... more

    If Nikhil Parekh has not already submitted his 3 poems, I’d like to propose these ones of his:
    Immortally Overpowering
    Immortally Splashed
    More Immortally godly than ever before

    If there happens to be room for 3 more, then include these:
    Loving you more immortally
    Our love would immortally conquer
    Supremely Immortal

    BEING HUMAN
    I was almost human but then something went wrong
    I was a human being but then I became a victim
    I almost became a human being but then I ran out of time
    I was one of two human beings involved in a hideous crime
    I was one of three human beings caught up in a mystery
    I forgot what it was like to feel human a long time ago
    I was set off as a human torch in the eyes of my fellow man
    I was human but then it stopped paying off
    I was one of two human beings in love with a third
    I felt godlike but it didn't last
    I was human but it felt strange to me
    It was fun being human for awhile till the fun wore off
    I was human but then I was in too much pain
    I loved a human being once and can hardly believe it now
    I saved a human being once but couldn't save myself
    I pulled a human being out of the water once
    but it was already dead
    I was a human being as long as it was in fashion
    I was in the business of being human
    I hunted down humans for a living
    Act like a human being he cried and then fired the gun
    I saw a human being once from a great distance
    I wanted to get close to a human being once but I failed
    A human being once wrote a beautiful letter to me
    but I didn't have the courage to answer it
    I watched a human being get away with murder
    A human being was singing once and then it stopped
    Human beings can be found everywhere
    yet I have never really known one
    Until you have lost a human being you loved
    you can't really call yourself human
    A great human being was said to have lived here
    I looked in the mirror once and saw something that looked
    like a viscous animal
    So that's what they look like, I thought
    It didn't look half human when they were finished with it
    I wouldn't want to be a human being for all the money in the world
    Now that 's a human being I thought and then it went for my throat
    I saw the most gentle human being the other day.
    She didn't see me.

    The following is ALMOST poetry (in fact I may make a poem out of it later on) .

    The Director of the National Museum in Iceland says that it is definitely established that during 600 years,1200 to 1800 in Iceland, there were no dental cavities. The foods they ate were milk and milk products, mutton, beef and fish. They ate no carbohydrate. The only exception to this was a little moss soup in the summer, but this was a rare 'fun food' of little nutritional importance. Two Indian tribes reveal the same thing.

    The prehistoric Indians of California were vegetarians, unlike most folks of that period, and they had tooth decay. In contrast, the Sioux Indians lived on buffalo meat and were devoid of cavities. The Pueblos worshipped the Corn God, but he was not grateful. They have the most wretched teeth of all the American Indian tribes. They live on corn, squash and beans. The Laplanders, who ate mostly reindeer meat during the 18th century, rarely had cavities. Modern laps have a decay rate of 85% of their teeth.


    Best wishes

      wait a minute, Allan, you're allan aren't you under that namecoat-there was an open call for people to submit. Your name was mentioned. You'll probably still be able to get on board.

    OK, we're getting a good list going, but let's 'close the doors' until I hear from those we've already invited. I'm sure everyone wants in, but I need a minute to tally the volume and space requirements before we proceed. I'll post tomorrow am where we stand.
