    Although vehemently disagreeing with acts of terrorism, it's time the wealthy nations of the world realised; this is the third world reacting to centuries of depravation and subjugation. In context the question should be asked, who manufactured the weapons? As ye sow, so shall ye reap?

      True, alas, Jerry - but terrorists seldom kill the generation who have deprived, depraved and subjugated them... as Richard points out...

    For some reason I hadn't noticed Chris Tusa's poems before today. He has a plain-spoken yet original and intelligent style.

    If you don't like to be in war
    and ask yourself what it be for
    the opportunity should seize
    to make and then maintain the peace.

    I love life and life loves me.
    I'm as happy as one could be.
    A happier man nowhere exists.
    I think it's time to slash my
    wrists.

    I have just posted a poem in Czech - NICOTA. I originally wrote my poem Void in Czech and I wanted to post it as I first wrote it. It seems that no matter what I do, there are 5 words that end up being split into two parts. Does anyone know how I can fix it?

    thanks
