    now have a look at breaker morant a poet who resided in Australia he was a horsebreaker by trade and a british fellow born in britain but adopted by Australians as one of them they court martialed him and had him shot for
    doing what soldiers do best kill the enemy they passed the buck the people at the top of the tree passed the buck down to breaker morant who they shot
    he was only obeying orders the movie is worth seeing he was a charactor
    i always think of him as Australian a man of courage, not a man of straw

      Allan, why not select one of Morant's poems which you admire so that we can discuss it on this forum?

      Saw the film, knew of Breaker and agree with you entirely Allan.

    Mahnaz, don't let that piece of garbage calling itself True American drive you away. He, she, or more likely it is a coward, who doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to name itself, other than with a bullshit pseudonym. In fact I stepped onto something on a pavement today, that looked and smelled exactly like this True American thing would. Keep smiling kiddo. Love, Jerry

      You know, if communication were even a secondary concern when you write, you would make sure that your comments did not sound as if you put them through a cheese grater before you sent them.

    Hey, would anyone know about where I can find Edna Millay's views on the social more of her time and place? Much appreciated.

      Millay was a pacifist until World War II, when she became something of a war-booster. She wrote a great deal of bad (for her) poetry about the Nazis and Japanese, and some of her poetry and commenta ... more

    Hi! My brother has been writing poems for years......I finally talked him into posting his poems. I'll warn you........they are not my 'taste' in poetry. They're a little on the ''dark'' side but as he says ''We're different people.'' He says feel free to comment HONESTLY. He's tough. (So he says!) :) I'm laughing (he's not) . Thanks guys, I know you have enough poems to read as it is but he's sorta hoping to see what people think. His name is RAY GASIEWICZ
